Cedar Rapids man charged with theft and forgery

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids Police have charged a local businessman with theft and forgery related to a hit and run earlier this month.

Police say 30-year-old Travis Golie was driving a black Dodge pickup on July 8, when he hit another vehicle. Police say Golie got out of the truck and ran away. Golie was charged with various traffic charges in the incident.

The pickup Golie was driving was registered to Hubers Enterprises. After the accident, the pickup was towed and impounded.

Police say the owner of Hubers Enterprises, Brian Hubers, presented forged documents to get the vehicle released from the towing company to avoid paying the $500 civil fee.

Hubers was arrested on Monday and charged with theft and forgery. He was taken to the Linn County Jail.
