(KYTX) - You want to keep an eye on your mailbox if you live in a rural area around Lindale. Constable Ken Bibby says crooks are going after letters with checks in them. The thieves will put them through a bleaching process then make the check payable to themselves. Neighbors are urged to report suspicious activity, especially since most of these crimes are happening in broad daylight.
Constables say this has been a reoccurring problem for years. They encourage homeowners with standard mailboxes to send mail through the post office.
