During the officers’ investigation, it was determined the suspects were in Galt for the purpose of mail theft when they were stopped by officers. It was also determined both suspects were connected to numerous mail thefts throughout town, as well as other nearby cities.
Both suspects were arrested and booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail for conspiracy, identity theft to obtain credit, and possession of burglary tools.
