USPS – Coins Stolen in Transit, New York to California

A package being shipped priority/express from New York to California has been reported lost/stolen. The last location scanned was Grass Valley, CA.

The package contained four 2019 W $100.00 American Liberty Series West Point Hoard High Relief Coins, SP-70 Ultra Cameo EF NGC. Certification Numbers: 6300008-238, 6300008-248, 6300008-236, 6300008-239.

Bad Checks

NCIC has received two reports involving bad checks written by a subject named Christopher Creech. The checks appear to have been written on two different credit union accounts, SAFE Credit Union and Valley Strong Credit Union.

Both credit unions are located in Bakersfield, CA. One dealer has reported that the check written on SAFE Credit Union returned showing “Account Closed”.

Dealers receiving checks from this person and returned checks showing “Account Closed” should file a police report. Checks written on accounts closed should be treated as criminal offenses due to the actor knowingly writing them without sufficient funds.
