A man awaiting trial after being charged with counterfeiting was arrested again Thursday after Helotes police accused him of cashing a $10,000 check that did not belong to him. Jon Rivera, 40, was charged with forgery of a check, Bexar County Jail records showed.
In February, a Helotes resident called police to report a stolen check. The resident’s family member was expecting a $10,000 check from USAA in the mail, but the check was never received, according to the arrest affidavit. The resident told police that the check had been cashed, however, into a Navy Federal Credit Union bank account.
PenFed employees were told the credit union would soon consolidate its branches, meaning some would need to relocate to San Antonio – or potentially lose their jobs.
The Commerce Department said Friday that new homes sold at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 635,000 units. That’s down from a sharply revised upward rate of 728,000 in June. So far this year, sales have risen 4.1%, a sign that buyers are beginning to respond to lower mortgage rates.
“People that can’t go, which is the majority, are going to be out of a job in a couple weeks or months,” San Antonio said.
