A 27-year-old Billings man is denying charges he stole a man's driver's license and personal checks from two other people and used them to try to cash in at two banks in Billings.
Tucker James McCune pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court on Thursday to three counts of bank fraud and three counts of aggravated identity theft.
Aggravated identity theft carries a mandatory minimum of two years in prison. Bank fraud is punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
McCune is accused of stealing a driver's license from one man and presenting himself as that individual to bank staff.
Prosecutors say he then presented the bank with a stolen and altered personal check from a second man that had been made payable to the man whose license McCune had in possession.
McCune is accused of doing this three times over a span of five days in February at both Western Security Bank and Valley Credit Union.
He's accused of stealing personal checks from one man and one woman, in addition to the other man whose license prosecutors say he stole.
As of Friday morning, McCune remained in custody at the Yellowstone County Detention Facility on a federal hold.
