Charles County Sheriff's Office Incident Reports

by - posted Jul 4 2013 11:18AM
THEFTS FROM MAILBOXES: The Charles County Sheriff’s Office is advising residents about several mail thefts that have been reported during the past few weeks throughout the county. In each case, homeowners have placed mail (usually bill payments) in their mailbox for the postal employee to pick up and deliver. However, someone is stealing the mail, altering the checks, and attempting to cash them at various banks - locally, in other cities, and in different states. The CCSO is vigorously pursuing leads. Investigators say in at least two cases, two different women attempted to cash the stolen checks. The women provided bank tellers with an ID but detectives believe the ID’s did not actually belong to the women. In some cases, the checks were cashed and in other cases the bank tellers questioned the validity of the checks and did not cash them.  
Charles County Crime Solvers is offering a cash reward. Anyone with information about these thefts is asked to call Det. E. Clark of the CCSO at (301) 609-6499.
