Action 9 investigates stolen checks from church in southwest Charlotte


Mail theft has gotten so bad that some are calling it an epidemic.

Action 9 investigator Jason Stoogenke recently saw signs on mailboxes at the Park Road Shopping Center warning about stolen mail.

It’s not clear who put them there but they beg the question many are asking: What’s being done about it?

Alice Ashe is the financial secretary for her church, Trinity Baptist, in southwest Charlotte.

She said she mailed some of the church’s checks a few months ago and was nervous about thieves stealing them so she dropped them in the blue mailbox in front of the FBI’s Charlotte headquarters.

“I thought it’d be safe there,” she said.
