TMZ has learned ... 19-year-old Joshua Drummonds was arrested Monday in Monroe County, MI after his mother told police he stole 5 checks out of her checkbook over the past few months and wrote them out to himself.

According to the criminal complaint, obtained by TMZ, Josh wasn't looking for a HUGE payday ... because he only took a total of $270 ... with each check ranging from $30 to $100.

Law enforcement tells us Drummonds is now facing 7 felony charges  -- 1 count of larceny for stealing the checks, 5 counts of forgery and 1 count of violating his probation.

Josh is facing up to 4 years behind bars for the larceny and 14 years for EACH COUNT of forgery.

Josh's bail has been set at $20,000. They probably won't take a check.

Ouch, he really must be a big disappointment to his mom. He's probably on drugs.

The dude stole $270 dollars and it = 7 felonies? He probably stole from his mom before and she told him if he did it again she was going to call the cops.

Doubt very seriously if his mom would call the cops on him for $270 dollars if this was his first time doing something like this to her.

This is the piece of trash who made his babymama choose between him or her own mother in the delivery room while she was giving birth. He's a drug addict POS who gets arrested all the time. Someone needs to stomp this little punk out.

I live close to this loser, and after I saw the little monster on the show and how he treated that girl I swore if I ever saw, or ran into the POS I'd smack the crap out of him.

Lol too bad he's not Lindsay Lohan. He would have got away with 5 minutes in jail, and 45 seconds of community service.

Seriously, who writes checks anymore? Wouldn't of happened if she had a debit card and all her $ would've been refunded to her.
