2 Amelia men found with stolen mail, court docs say
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Two Amelia men were arrested in Montgomery Saturday after they were allegedly found with stolen U.S. mail following a traffic stop.
Joshua Morgan, 28, and Lance Hatfield, 28, were pulled over for a driver’s license violation, according to court records.
According to the records, police found “numerous pieces of USPS mail” in the vehicle during the traffic stop.
The two men “later admitted to stealing mail from mailboxes,” Montgomery police wrote in Hatfield’s affidavit.
Both suspects were charged with four counts of theft and one count of forgery after police found a “stolen forged check” in the vehicle, another affidavit shows.
Hatfield’s bond was set to $3,000 and is expected to appear in court on Feb. 3.
Morgan’s bond was set to $1,000 and his next court date will be on Feb. 7.
