PELHAM, N.Y. - Police were called to a Pelhamdale Avenue house on Saturday at 3:23 p.m. because of a stolen personal check. According to police, the victim told the responding officer that a check was stolen the day before by his brother-in-law. He saw a check for $650 made out to the suspect that was cashed on Friday.
The suspect had been staying at the residence and therefore had easy access to the checkbook when it was left out to pay for the boiler repairman. The victim just wanted the suspect removed from the house and she would decide over the weekend on whether to take further action.
