Someone is stealing mail in Montgomery County.
Montgomery County Police are investigating a series of mail thefts that have occurred throughout the county starting back in November 2012.
Police said the thefts are happening after the victims put their outgoing mail on their mailboxes. In many cases the mail contained checks to pay bills. The suspects have been stealing the mail, removing the checks, then altering and cashing or attempting to cash the altered checks at area banks.
Police are recommending that citizens drop important outgoing mail at local post offices or in a U.S. Postal Service mailbox. Another option to consider is not using the “flag” on your mailbox as an alert that there is mail waiting in your box.
Please report any suspicious situations, vehicles or person(s) to police by calling 9-1-1 or the non-emergency line, 301-279-8000. Callers may remain anonymous
