An eastern Iowa man found a new use for his home computer — and is finding himself behind bars. A Davenport man is getting four and a half years behind bars for cashing phony payroll checks at a riverboat casino. He also was ordered to make restitution and pay court costs. 37-year-old Howard Davis will serve three consecutive 18-month prison terms. That’s after he pleaded guilty to two felony charges of forgery and one charge of second-degree theft. Davis designed more than eight thousand dollars in checks on his home computer and cashed them at Clinton’s Mississippi Belle II. Belinda Dearborn of Davenport also is under arrest in the case. She is accused of being his accomplice. Her case has not yet gone to trial.
