CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - A 27-year-old man charged with stealing dozens of checks from the Cheyenne Board of Public Utilities‘ payment drop box has pleaded not guilty.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/2kXZeTt) Nicholas Hill pleaded not guilty Friday to three counts of forgery. He denied a fourth forgery charge in the case last month.

Court documents say Hill broke into the drop box in October and stole roughly 60 payments.

Four public utilities customers reported their payment checks being forged and cashed the following month.

Police used surveillance video from a bank where Hill tried to cash one of the checks to identify him.

The bank teller had reported that a man came in to cash a personal check but became agitated and left after his name wasn’t found in the bank’s database.
