Arrest warrants have been issued for three people accused of stealing checks from suburban mailboxes and fraudulently altering and cashing them.

On April 2, 2022, Lake County Sheriff's police responded to a home in the 38200 block of North Bolton Place in unincorporated Antioch for a report of a theft.

A 91-year-old victim told an officer he began receiving late notices on bills he paid.


According to police, an investigation revealed David S. Kaminski, Jessica C. Garlock, and Elizabeth M. Tiskevich all worked together to drive around neighborhoods to steal checks from mailboxes and then alter those checks to make them payable to themselves.
