The County Sheriff’s Office is looking for a man wanted in connection to a series of mail thefts and check fraud across SLO County.
The man was seen about 2:15 p.m. Jan. 23 at the Guadalajara Meat Market, 1400 W. Grand Ave., in Grover Beach, allegedly cashing a fraudulent check that was reportedly stolen from a mailbox in the 1400 block of Old Oak Park Rd., in rural Arroyo Grande sometime between Jan. 15-20, according to Sheriff’s spokesman Tony Cipolla.
“This suspect may be associated with a number of thefts from mailboxes, which have occurred in the county,” Cipolla said in a news release.
The suspect is an adult male, 18-25-years old, medium build, dark hair, and wearing a black baseball cap with the letters “SF” on the front.
He was also wearing a black T-shirt with the NFL Raiders football team logo and reading, “‘LV ESTABLISHED 1960 RAIDERS FOOTBALL’ in camouflage lettering on the front of the T-shirt. He also had a face covering with a silkscreen image of a panting of a dog’s face.”
The Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help with identifying the suspected dog-faced Raider fan and suspected thief. Call the Sheriff’s Office with any information at (805) 781-4550.
