Scott Hinson of Accabonac Road noticed three checks missing from his checkbook on June 10. Five days earlier, he told police, he’d had a new boiler installed. When he called his bank he was told that two of the missing checks had already been cashed, for $625 and $495, with his signature forged on both. An ex-employee of the boiler company is suspected of having taken the checks, and police are investigating.
