WICHITA, Kansas – The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department says more arrests have been made in 150 mail thefts.
The thefts were uncovered nearly two weeks ago when stolen documents including mail, checks, credit cards and Social Security cards were found in the home of a 23-year-old Wichita woman.
The sheriff’s department says their investigation uncovered more crime which included theft of property.
“Charges will be presented today for two of the three new suspects, they include burglary, auto theft and possession of narcotics,” said Lt. Dave Mattingly, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Department.
The sheriff’s department says they have had to contact other law agencies to help. Some include neighboring counties to Sedgwick.
“The case has really snowballed, and we thought we had one crime organization and it’s spidered out into several so the necessity to contact other law enforcement agencies, potentially federal law enforcement agencies has come up to assist us in our investigation,” said Mattingly.
The names of the suspects have not been released.
