A very busy mail thief suspect was arrested and booked into jail after a resident saw him on a video camera stealing his mail. Officers quickly responded to the 300 block of 109th Ave SE on Sunday, June 26th, just before 4:00 am, and located a vehicle in the area matching the description given by the victim. As officers were talking to the 33-year-old from Tacoma, they saw a large amount of mail visible in the suspect’s car.
The suspect gave officers permission to search his car, and they confiscated hundreds of pieces of mail, three US passports, 23 credit and debit cards, 16 personal checks and more, all in different names. Officers also recovered two black replica rifles.
The suspect was arrested and booked into jail without incident.
