A Muncie man is accused of stealing checks from his grandmother and using them to withdraw $6,000 from her bank account.

According to Delaware County sheriff’s deputies, 24-year-old Derek Tyler Beeler had recently lived with his grandmother, and after he moved out she noticed money missing from her account.

Investigators determined checks had been stolen, made out in Beeler’s name and cashed.

Beeler was arrested after leading a sheriff’s deputy on a vehicle chase that ended at the suspect’s home in the 9500 block of North Wheeling Avenue.
