Folsom Police Officers from the Problem Oriented Policing (POP) unit conducted routine patrols of the Palladio shopping center on Tuesday, March 5th, around 2:15 PM, when they observed suspicious behavior by a female patron entering Nordstrom Rack. As officers approached the parking lot aisle from which the female had emerged, they noticed a male individual exhibiting similar suspicious conduct in a nearby vehicle. Additional officers were summoned to assist in making contact with the suspects.

Upon engaging the male suspect, identified as Rubin Carrillo, 42, of Stockton, he provided false identification and claimed residency in the Stockton area. Further scrutiny revealed a package within plain view inside Carrillo’s vehicle, bearing a Folsom delivery address and postmark, raising suspicions of possible theft. Consequently, Carrillo was detained by officers.

Meanwhile, officers within Nordstrom Rack were alerted by store personnel to the female suspect, identified as Mariah Marshall, 28, also of Stockton, who was observed shoplifting clothing items. Marshall was swiftly located and detained by law enforcement.

Due to Marshall’s parole status, a comprehensive search of Carrillo’s vehicle was conducted, revealing a large garbage bag in the trunk containing over 500 pieces of mail originating from the Folsom and El Dorado Hills areas. Folsom Police Department has referred the case of mail theft to the US Postal Inspectors for further investigation.

Rubin Carrillo was arrested for violations of California Penal Code sections 148.9(A) and 496 PC, while Mariah Marshall was apprehended for outstanding warrants and a violation of 496 PC. Both individuals were subsequently booked at the Sacramento County Jail.

In an effort to mitigate the risk of mail theft, Folsom Police Department issued a reminder to residents, emphasizing the importance of collecting mail daily. Additionally, they advised residents planning to be away for an extended period to consider halting mail delivery through the United States Postal Service or arranging for a trusted individual to retrieve mail in their absence. Suspicious activity near mailboxes should be promptly reported to authorities by contacting 916-355-7231.
