WILTON - Wilton police are investigating after three people have said someone stole checks they dropped in the mail.

Officials say all of them were placed into a mail drop box at the town's post office.

In total, police say the thief collected four checks totaling about $10,000.

One victim told News 12 Connecticut he noticed the problem when he saw a canceled check addressed to a person he didn?t write it to on his statement.

Police have not determined if the checks were taken from the drop box or were intercepted in transit.
