POLICE SEEK MAN WHO USED STOLEN CHECKS

Buffalo police are seeking help this week in tracking down a suspect wanted for the possession of a forged instrument, forgery and larceny.

Thereon Collins is described as a 26-year-old black male weighing 220 pounds who stands about 6 feet, 2 inches tall.

Police have warrants for his arrest on the charges of forgery, possession of a forged instrument and other charges. He is accused of stealing checks from a neighbor's mail in October and using one of the checks to purchase a car. The check bounced, and the seller was cheated out of a car, police said.

Collins, say police, was out on bail for an unrelated charge at the time of this crime.

If you have any information about this crime or any other unsolved felony, please call the Crime Stopper Coordinators at 856-5600.

You will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward of as much as $1,000.

A re-enactment of the crime will appear at 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. today on WKBW-TV, Channel 7.
