WATERLOO (AP) - A 35-year-old Waterloo man has been sentenced to prison for taking and forging a Red Cross check.

Adrain Paul Swensen had pleaded guilty to forgery and to unauthorized use of a credit card in a separate incident, the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports.

Earlier this month he was given five years for the forgery and two years on the credit card conviction.

Swensen also is known as Adrain Paul Noe.

Authorities say Swensen had volunteered to stuff envelopes at the Red Cross office in Cedar Rapids in August when he took a $1,250 check that was to be sent to a woman. Authorities say he later cashed the check at a Waterloo bank.
