WORTHINGTON - A Slayton man accused of issuing dishonored checks to a Worthington business has been charged in Nobles County District Court.

John Nelson, 55, faces a felony issuance of dishonored check charge after allegedly issuing two checks totaling $681.99 to a Worthington business despite the checking account’s closure.

According to the criminal complaint, Nelson didn’t respond to a demand for payment notification. He told law enforcement he was not sure why his bank account was closed and that there should have been sufficient funds to purchase two guitars.

The complaint also states Nelson’s April 2018 bank statement showed a negative balance and that 16 checks were returned for insufficient funds.

His initial appearance in Nobles County District Court is Aug. 28.
