A South End man accused of trying to steal more than $2 million from the charity for victims of the Boston Marathon bombings is suing the State Police and FedEx in connection with the investigation.
Branden E. Mattier, 23, filed his civil suit last week in federal court in Boston. He contends that the defendants violated his constitutional rights when he was arrested in July after allegedly signing for a bogus $2.2 million check from One Fund Boston. A state trooper posing as a FedEx driver delivered the check to his address.
“One Fund Boston never authorized the issuance of said check, nor agreed to a check being doctored to resemble that of a One Fund Boston check,” Mattier wrote in his complaint. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
