SCAM: Sgt. McKinney received a U.S. Priority Mail letter addressed to him at the Police Department. The return address indicated that it was from the Austin Academy of Aviation in Austin, Texas. A check of the USPS tracking number indicated it originally accepted at the USPS Regional Facility in Coppell TX Distribution Center on June 15, 2018. The only item inside the envelope was a cashier’s check made out to Sgt. McKinney in the amount of $1,945.30 drawn on the Pueblo Bank & Trust, Pueblo Colo. with the note at the bottom that the remitter was “Shelly Gates”. This is identical to the check the officer received at the Police Department in March 2017. The check appears to be a scam. After the last check received in 2017, the officer was contacted by someone with Austin Aviation that stated they have had several similar reports and they too have been a victim of this attempted scam. The officer placed both the envelope and check into evidence.
