September 21, 2004

Champion Mining Supplies Inc., a 24-year-old company that sells replacement parts to the coal mining industry, had more than $36,000 in non-negotiable checks stolen from a company vehicle, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review newspaper on September 16.Even though the loss included $36,254 worth of checks stamped "For Deposit Only" and did not constitute a monetary loss, owner Paul Phillips said he would like to see the thieves be prosecuted. "It's still a theft from a vehicle," he said Wednesday. "Our customers have been inconvenienced by having to stop payment on the checks and reissue them."
