More counterfeit checks surfacing in Anchorage
Anchorage police say more victims are coming forward in connection with four U.S. Postal Service mail collection boxes that were stolen.
The Anchorage Daily News reports that several people have come forward to say counterfeit checks have been cashed on their bank accounts.
Police say it is possible that the thieves are using information stolen from mail they dropped in one of the four collections boxes stolen between Dec. 19 and Christmas Day.
Police have issued an arrest warrant for 50-year-old Clifford Earl Dancer. He is accused of cashing a check police believe was stolen from one of the large, blue collection boxes.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office is considering federal charges in the case.
