A Grand Forks Man who wrote checks from a checkbook he stole from a car in Polk County will spend 54 days in jail.

21-year-old Douglas Ziegelmann was sentenced Monday on forgery and receiving stolen property charges.

Police stopped Ziegelman and impounded his car last year for driving without insurance.

They found nearly $750 worth of items he had purchased with the stolen checks.

Zieglemann was also convicted in 2009 for taking credit card numbers from people who bought things at the store where he worked.

If Ziegelmann violates his probation, he faces 21 months in jail.
