Arrests Made in Mail Theft Case

HAYS, Kan. (AP) The Ellis County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two people in connection with recent mail theft cases from rural mail boxes.

Detective Scott Braun told The Hays Daily News the sheriff’s office had received reports of seven recent mail thefts in the county as of Dec. 18. Law enforcement said they believed thieves were looking through mailboxes in rural areas of the county, apparently looking for cash in cards or envelopes.

Most of the reports were east of Hays, between the city and Victoria.

Braun says a man and a woman were arrested Tuesday in connection with the thefts. The suspects’ names are being withheld until formal charges are filed.
