HYDE PARK, Utah (AP) -- About $15,000 in fraudulent paychecks have been cashed in what police believe is a string of burglaries involving stolen blank checks.
The fraudulent paychecks are from JM Mechanical in Hyde Park, the fourth Cache County business to report stolen blank checks. Three Logan businesses, Pallets of Utah, Ducworks and Bio-West, were burglarized in January and February.
"We believe it's related to the same crimes that were committed in Logan, but right now we have no leads," North Park Police Detective Shawn Bennett said.
Logan Police Detective. Louise Speth said there haven't been any new blank check burglaries reported in Logan since the Feb. 8 incident at Bio-West.
Checks stolen from Pallets of Utah have not been cashed, but Ducworks and Bio-West had a combined loss of $4,500.
