The Rainy River District OPP recently charged two people in relation to possessing cheques that did not belong to them.
Officers believe cheques are being stolen as opportunities present themselves, including directly for mailboxes after they are delivered.
It is important that members of the public track when they are expecting cheques in the mail and ensure that mail is checked daily.
The OPP is committed to community safety. Members of the public are urged to report these thefts so police can make an appropriate response.
If you see someone in your yard or around your mailbox, call the police using 9-1-1.
If you find that you have been a victim of this type of crime, call 1-888-310-1122 to make a report.
