A New Bern man accused of stealing from his own mother by writing $1,900 worth of bad checks is now behind bars.

Authorities arrested James Hand of New Bern and charged him with 17 fraud charges including forgery. An investigation of several incidents of fraudulent activity of checks drawn from Wachovia bank for 6 months between December 2010 and this month led to the arrest.

Investigators say the checks were drawn against his mother's account. Hand's bond was set for ten thousand dollars.

    Yes this is sad to put his mother through this. I,m sure she loves her son but she is doing the right thing by pressing charges against him, she might be saving his life. As for Dana Lewis her day is coming and she will also pay for stealing from Ken Russ ,I sure hope the owner at the Sun Spa is watching her closely, i use to work with her and you don,t live that good on secretary pay unless you have a college degree. It,s a sad situation for thele families as they go through this time in life ,maybe God can forgive you but the court system probably won,t!!!!!!

    I for one am sick and tired of lowlifes getting the opportunity to breathe the same air as I albeit the lowlifes in my neighborhood that pretend that they work and you know that they have an illegal drug operation going on and the whole neighborhood takes part in it too and the Craven county sheriff department just lets it happen!

    No one to blame but himself. He knew what he was doing and I am sure he has stolen from other family members as well. They say, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. Not to blame the parents for this persons actions, but he had to learn from some one. Just saying.

    there is alot of stealing and embezzelment going on, honest people are out there working and trying to hold on to what they have,and then you take these thieves stealing from them. women stealing from their jobs out there playing bigshot with someone elses money, you know who you are and so does everyone else. quit acting like you are so prim and proper because your day in court is coming and you will be behind bars, maybe this will bring you down a notch or two,besause you are no better than the others in prison.. you might even get into the SUN SPA Dana Lewis!!!!!!!!!!!

      If his so called father had the courage to raise his son the correct way this never would have happened.
