Felon released but with District Attorney's warning

FORTUNA- A Fortuna felon is released from custody and the District Attorney’s Office is asking local merchants to beware.

Released is James Cunha. He has court dates in November to answer for check fraud and receiving stolen property among other felony charges.

Authorities say he continues to offend by using stolen checks, fake checks and closed accounts. Since this last September, five check complaints totaling over $3,000 are allegedly attributed to Cunha. More fraudulent checks could be out there. If you have received bad checks from Cunha, contact the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office.
