A man and two teenage boys, all from Yonkers, were arrested after they stole envelopes from a mailbox at the Darien Post Office on Saturday, police said. Also, a check was found to have been altered after it had been mailed at the same place on the previous Tuesday, police said. Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:

Two Checks Altered for a Total of $2,343

On Tuesday, Oct. 23, a man later told police, he had mailed six checks by putting the envelopes in a mailbox at the Post Office on Corbin Drive. His bank later informed him that some of the checks had possibly been cashed fraudulently.
