A husband and wife on North Wilton Road told police Saturday that someone had stolen some of their checks, forged signatures on them and cashed the checks for a total of $1,776.
When the couple found unexplained check withdrawals showing up in their bank statement, they asked their bank about it, and the bank showed them images of the checks. The couple concluded that checks had been stolen from their home.
Most of the checks had been made out to cash, and both the husband's and the wife's signatures had been forged. The checks were dated between April 2 and April 30.
Various workers have been doing jobs in the couple's home. Police are still investigating the matter.
