HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -

Two people are behind bars after allegedly being involved in possession of stolen checks totaling over $200 thousand.

According to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office, agents from the Regional Narcotics Unit stopped a rental car in Arlington Heights on Monday due to a number of traffic violations on the car.

Agents arrested Christopher Williams and Jatera Clement. Investigators later executed a search warrant at a Hamilton County motel and recovered stolen checks valued at $238,732.

The sheriff's office says the checks appeared to be stolen from mailboxes at businesses in Warren and Butler County. Williams and Clement allegedly drove around looking for businesses with unsecured mailboxes.

The suspects would alter the checks and make them payable to local Cincinnati individuals who would attempt to cash the checks. The Hamilton County Sheriff's Office says the Cincinnati subject would receive 10-percent of the checks when cashed.
