He is a suspect in the theft of a wallet and personal checks, according to the Great Falls Tribune. Court records show that Reardon allegedly cashed four of the missing checks and there were two warrants out for his arrest, reports the newspaper.

The documents also say that one of the checks was cashed by Reardon after law enforcement contacted him about the missing wallet and told Reardon that the checks made out to him were reported as fraudulent, according to the paper.

His court date is scheduled for May 7, according to the Tribune.
