A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Christopher L. Burns, 31, last known address in Athens, Wis.
Burns was charged Feb. 6 in Waupaca County Circuit Court with forgery uttering.
On Oct. 28, 2013, Econofoods in Clintonville contacted police and reported receiving a worthless check for $256 from Burns.
When the store asked Clintonville Police Sgt.
