Two men charged with stealing people’s mail from post office in Ocean Township, NJ
Two men who committed a late night raid of people's mailboxes at a post office in Ocean Township have been arrested and charged for their trespasses.
Police arrived to the Oakhurst Post Office around 10:15 pm on January 9 on a report of someone breaking into the mailboxes and when officers arrived on the scene, they saw two people leaving the back of the building.
They caught up with both and once they had a conversation with Ricky Javier, 23, of Hackensack and Kaseem Kid, 29, Lyndhurst, they conducted an investigation.
Police said that they found several pieces of mail in Kid's pockets as well as near where Javier's vehicle was parked.
While it was raining that night, police said that much of the mail they found had a "sticky glue like substance" on them, something officers also found on the slot where people would insert their mail to the post office.
It was at this point that Javier and Kid were placed in handcuffs and the vehicle they were riding in was seized pending a search warrant.
They were then processed at police headquarters.
Kid is charged with Burglary, Theft, Possession of Burglar Tools, Receiving Stolen Property, and Tampering with Evidence.
He was released on a summons after processing pending a future court appearance.
Javier is charged with Burglary, Theft, Possession of Burglar Tools, and Receiving Stolen Property.
He was brought to the Monmouth County Correctional Institution, pending an initial court appearance.
Ocean Township Police said that if you're missing mail or bills you sent out didn't arrive where they were supposed to, you can contact Detective Michael Legg at 732-531-1428.
