Harford County Police Seek Mailbox Bandit
HARFORD COUNTY - The suspect who stole a check from a mailbox along Pulaski Highway reportedly tried to steal checks from other mailboxes in the area, according to the Harford County Sheriff's Office.
The Mailbox Bandit stole his first check from an Edgewood welding business and cashed it for $4,900.
"The victim reported that through his bank, he was able to determine that the check was cashed in the Baltimore County area approximately three weeks prior to the reporting of the theft," Major Donald Gividen of the Harford County Sheriff's Office told WMAR.
Brian Trees, the owner of National Budget Muffler, told WMAR that thieves swiped a $1,000 check he had written to pay a utility bill, but a bank teller refused to honor it when someone tried to cash it.
Anyone with information about the suspect or the case can call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
