Newspaper delivery worker arrested after allegedly stealing $10,000 in altered checks from mailboxes
MADISON, Wis. -- The Dane County Sheriff's Office says it has arrested a newspaper delivery worker for allegedly stealing thousands of dollars' worth of checks from mailboxes on his route.
The sheriff's department says deputies have recently been investigating a number of fraud complaints from across northeast Dane County. Investigators were able to determine all of the complaints stemmed from the delivery route the man -- a 58-year-old from Waunakee -- worked.
Victims reported having checks stolen from their mailboxes. The sheriff's office alleges the man would take the checks, alter them, and then cash them. He's accused of stealing more than $10,000 in forged and altered checks.
