MILTON, Ga. -- A Michigan man has been indicted on 52 counts of first degree forgery after allegedly stealing $153,000 from his cousin and her ex-husband, who live in Milton.

On Friday, May 13, Dwight H. Windom, 29, of Westlaw, Michigan, was indicted by a grand jury.

Brad Malkin, head of the Fulton County District Attorney's Office White Collar Crime Unit, and Milton police detective Stephen Hewitt presented evidence stretching back to 2008 against the defendant.

According to police, Windom stole checks from his cousin, DeShawn Snow, and her then-husband Eric Snow, made them out to himself and cashed them.

DeShawn Snow notified police of the missing money in February of last year, after it was discovered by the Snows' bookkeeper.

Windom was arrested in March 2010 and charged with two counts of first degree forgery. He left jail on a $10,000 bond.

Windom will be extradited from his home state of Michigan for the trial.
