A former employee at The Dog House, at 15 W. Washington St. in Hagerstown, was charged with stealing checks from the store's owner, according to court documents.

Marvin Dewayne Green, 23, of 314 Henry Ave. in Hagerstown, was charged in September with first-degree burglary, theft, forgery and uttering false documents, Washington County District Court documents state. During a preliminary hearing Wednesday, a judge found probable cause to proceed with charges against Green.

Green went to Susquehanna Bank on Massey Boulevard in Hagerstown and allegedly attempted to cash two checks - each for $850 - on Sept. 26, documents state.
