A 28-year-old New Jersey man has been arrested by Darien police on an accusation that he stole two personal checks from a Darien man who had mailed them a year ago to pay taxes. Accusations in the police account, including these further details, have not been proven in court:

The victim said he mailed two personal checks to pay his taxes on Jan. 16, 2023, but on May 19 of that year, the IRS told him the payment was missing. The victim checked with his bank and found that both checks had cleared, but that they had been made out to “Love Flow Logistics,” and had been endorsed by someone named David Velazquez. The amounts on the checks and the victim’s signature were unchanged.
