Two checks were stolen from an Inwood Road resident who thinks they were taken from a U.S. Postal Service drop-off box, either in Darien or Norwalk, police said. One check, originally for $300 was altered and successfully cashed for $6,000, police said. Darien police also said:
The matter was reported to police on Wednesday, Nov. 27. The check that was cashed had been originally written to a utility company for about $300.
