Southwest Florida police is asking for the public’s help identifying a man who’s been stealing checks out of mailboxes, then “washing” off the information and cashing them for his own personal gain.
The unknown male has been caught cashing several fraudulent checks at multiple banks in Collier County over the last few months. The checks were all stolen after being placed in mailboxes, then clearly removed by the suspect or an accomplice. The checks were then washed or altered, with payee names and dollar amounts changed. It is believed that the suspect used stolen identities in order to successfully cash the checks without question.
While the suspect may be local, detectives believe he may also be coming back and forth to Collier County from the east coast.
