 Warren County Sheriff's deputies busted two people Monday for mail theft. Jeremy Anderson and a female passenger, Ondraya Wroten of Peoria, Arizona were arrested.

Both face charges of obtaining personal identification for unlawful use. Quick thinking by homeowners led to a man and woman snatching mail along Porter's Chapel Road .  

Deputies responded and pulled over a black Dodge Ram on China Grove road.  According to Sheriff Martin Pace, the seat was loaded with letters that did not belong to the driver or female passenger. 

According to the sheriff, thieves steal mail to set up false id's, and get credit cards in victims' names.

"Yes this is for identity theft," said Sheriff Pace. "They are stealing mail. Some of the parcels of mail have enough information to glean enough information to use for identity theft."

 Deputies discovered pieces of mail from the Vicksburg area, Copiah County, even other states.

 ""We have recovered mail from over 70 locations," added Sheriff Pace. We've recovered 8 credit cards  and various other things including some pharmaceuticals, people who receive medicine in the mail. I will say that all of the mail that was recovered out of this vehicle will ultimately be delivered by the post office as this investigation progresses." 

Warren County authorites are running a parallel investigation with  federal Postal  Inspectors. 

Anderson and Wroten are being held without bond. This is an ongoing investigation
