CLEARWATER – If you live in an apartment complex, the Clearwater Police say not to use the drop box to leave a check or money order. Police are investigating a number of cases where checks and money orders have been stolen by thieves breaching the lock boxes. This has happened at multiple apartment complexes across the city. The best thing to do is to hand one’s rent payment to someone inside the leasing office.
