WESTPORT — A Pennsylvania man is accused of stealing a $25,550 check from the mail locally.

Jason Lumas, 31, of Allentown, Pa., was charged Jan. 9 with first-degree larceny and third-degree identity theft in connection with the incident.

Police were alerted last Oct. 6 that a check for $25,550, dropped in a local Postal Service mailbox for delivery, had been apparently been intercepted.

The check was then “fraudulently endorsed,” police said, and deposited Oct. 13 into a TD Bank account that was not the intended recipient’s.
