VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - A Florida man is accused of stealing mail out of Lowndes County mail boxes.

Investigators were called to First State Bank in Lake Park after a teller recognized a check David Gavin was trying to cash was stolen.

When investigators showed up, Gavin ran, but he didn't get far.

They caught him and say he was stealing checks from mailboxes in Dasher. He'd already cashed some of them.

Gavin is charged with two counts of forgery and two counts of possession of stolen property.
