Wesley Hills , NY - Mail Thieves from Brooklyn Caught in Rockland County
Wesley Hills , NY - Some mail thieves are busted in the Wesley Hills section of Ramapo where cops say they caught two men taking mail out of mailboxes with metal cooking tongs. When the car was searched, Detective Lieutenant Brad Widell says they found hundreds of opened letters and checks sorted.
“I don’t think it was their first night,” said Weidel.
Weidel says the small checks were cashed in Rockland County, but the larger ones were sent to Israel.
“They never even worried about the names on the check. Banks didn’t even necessarily examine whether the checks were made to the particular account holder or not. They just deposited them,” said Weidel.
The two men who are from Brooklyn, now face a whole list of charges, including criminal possession of stolen property.
The public is reminded that the above are mere allegations. Defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.
