Two envelopes, each holding a check, were stolen Monday, Jan. 10, from the mailbox outside a home on Bittersweet Lane, a man told Darien police.
The man spoke to police early that afternoon and said he put both envelopes in his mailbox at about 7:30 a.m. that day. At 9:30 a.m., he noticed the mailbox door was open, which seemed suspicious to him.
He called his mail carrier directly, police said they were told, and the mail carrier said the mail on that street hadn’t been picked up yet.
The victim said he contacted his bank.
