Last Friday during our huge mail theft arrest and
investigation there was a second mail theft investigation coming to a
conclusion. Over the past several months our detectives had been working
several cases of mail theft from area USPS mailboxes located just outside of
the villages. The Postal Inspectors Office had enjoined us and Hedwig PD in the
investigation and our detectives and investigators worked in collaboration and
were able to successfully get an indictment on our suspect. Read the US
Attorney’s Office News Release (attached) for additional details. Great job by
both teams of detectives in putting together this large and complex case.
Yesterday afternoon officers and detectives attempted
to arrest another serial mail thief who was in our area looking to steal more
mail. When officers attempted to stop the suspect, he fled from our officers
driving on the wrong side of the street. When the vehicle turned going towards
Hunters Creek Elementary School officers called off trying to stop the suspect
for the safety of the community. Minutes later, the suspects vehicle hit again
on an ALPR as he was now driving the Longwoods neighborhood, again looking for
Once again officers responded to the area. Upon seeing
the officers, the vehicle fled driving recklessly towards Duchesne
Academy. Again, officers did not pursue
out of an abundance of caution and due to safety. The good thing is our
officers were able to positively identify the suspect as they clearly saw him.
Detectives are obtaining another arrest warrant for this serial offender.
Hopefully, the next time he is arrested he will stay in jail and not get
another trip through the revolving doors of justice. In the meantime, please
remove your mail as soon as possible each and every day. Good work by our
This weekend we celebrate Labor Day. Unfortunately,
this weekend is also known as a drinking weekend, meaning we expect to see
additional drunk drivers on street across the metro area. Please be extra
careful if out driving, especially during the evening hours. We will have
officers out looking for drunk drivers and will have no problem arresting them
and towing their vehicles.
Have a great weekend, Chief Ray Schultz email@example.com
