Police show stolen mail (LASD)
LOS ANGELES — Three people, two men and a woman, were arrested on Thursday on charges stemming from a rash of mail and package thefts from many mailboxes in the Santa Clarita Valley.
A citizen spotted two people acting suspiciously at 4:30 in the morning that day, stealing mail from a community mailbox. The citizen called the police, who responded to the 24100 block of Newhall Ranch Road.
Police then followed the suspects’ Chevy Tahoe as it drove toward I-5. There they conducted a traffic stop and discovered numerous mail and packages filling the cabin of the vehicle.
A third suspect was discovered under the large pile of mail.
22-year-old Kieontay Williams, 27-year-old Breeona Scott and 23-year-old Timothy Brown were arrested and charged with grand theft and mail theft. Williams was already on active probation for identity theft.
