PHOENIX (AP) - Three people are in custody for allegedly stealing from mailboxes in Phoenix.
Phoenix police say 30-year-old Jerry Pemberton, 34-year-old Sandra Neese and 46-year-old Jerry Sebrasky are being held on suspicion of aggravated identity theft, forgery and several mail theft offenses.
Authorities say two people reported seeing people stealing from mailboxes outside Phoenix homes early Monday and then fleeing in a car.
A witness followed the vehicle and called police, which led to the arrests.
Police searched the suspects' apartment and say they discovered counterfeit checks, fake drivers licenses, and high quality printers and scanners.
They also reported finding about 30 "victim profiles" containing information that could have possibly been taken from mail theft.
Police didn't immediately know Wednesday if any of the three suspects had legal representation yet.
