— Conway police said Friday they are looking for a Kingstree man in connection with charges related to a check forgery case where checks were stolen from a mailbox and used last month at Wal-Mart, according to Capt. Tammy Carter.

Niquon Antwan Alston, 29, of Kingstree is wanted on check forgery charges in connection with checks being stolen from mailboxes and used to purchase items, Carter said. Alston is accused of using a stolen check on Nov. 9 at the Wal-Mart in Conway and police linked three stolen checks to Alston.

Police used video surveillance from the store to identify Alston, Carter said. Officers have been investigating checks being stolen from mailboxes in November and earlier this month and then used at area businesses to purchase other items.

Anyone with information regarding Alston’s whereabouts can call Conway police at 248-1790.
