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.

From the get-go this guy was a d-bag. He could neither speak nor act right. No surprise on this one.

I haven't watching MTV since they began snubbing the Backstreet Boys 9 years ago. And since TRL stopped posting the real voting stats.

Unless you know the whole story dont get down on the mother, after doing all you can for a person then be stolen from time after time, you have to put your foot down somewhere. And she is not the one who set up the law or said how much time he should get for the crime.
