Local man charged with forgery

A local man who allegedly signed his brother's name on a traffic citation faces forgery charges.

Ricardo Amaya, 21, of Marshalltown, stands accused of signing his brother's name to a traffic ticket and providing the officer who stopped him with his brother's name after being pulled over on the 500 block of South Third Avenue back in October.
