Man arrested for stealing checks out of mailbox
SAN ANTONIO - A man is behind bars accused of cashing a stolen check.
Police say the victim had his checks stolen out of the mailbox.
An arrest affidavit said the victim found his checks were stolen when he received a Facebook message about the crime.
Police arrested Heath Jason Morris. The report says there is video of the hot check being cashed at a local bank for more than $1,000. It was disguised as a check for handyman work done on a home.
After the check was cashed, the report says Morris paid another suspect $100 for helping him cash the check.
One of the victims confirmed it was not her signature on the check.
Morris remains behind bars on an unrelated theft of a firearm charge. He also faces forgery charges. His bond was set at $4,000.
