The Turlock Journal recently reported on the arrests of three individuals by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department stemming from a search warrant issued for a residence and vehicle in Waterford California.
The search recovered “a large amount of stolen mail” along with a loaded handgun, illegal drugs and digital forensic evidence that the sheriff’s department believes may point to an ongoing identity theft scheme. The parties arrested were Rebecca Reagan, Ryan Swindle and Brittany Dickerson. Reagan and Swindle appear to be the focus of the mail theft charges. Investigators from the United States Postal Service are working with the Sheriff’s office as they sort through the stolen mail which was apparently taken from communal mailboxes, like those found outside of many apartment buildings, in multiple jurisdictions in the area. Digital forensic investigators are tasked with reviewing the electronic devices and other digital evidence recovered from the residence in an attempt to identify those whose personal information may have been exposed by the theft.
