FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - A local couple is behind bars, charged with stealing personal information out of mailboxes.

Police say Patrick Deblasio and Angela Williamson would steal phone and electric payments, then cash the checks.

Investigators believe they did at least ten times in Hamilton and Clermont counties.

"Take precautions," said Robert Bradford with Miami Township Police. "When you put your red flag up on your mailbox, it makes for a target for some criminals."

The suspects are charged with felony counts of receiving stolen property and forgery.
