WAITE PARK, Minn. (KNSI) Waite Park Police Chief Dave Bentrud says two men are suspected of being involved in stealing mail from mailboxes in a three county area around St. Cloud.
The stolen mail was discovered last week when police stopped a man for suspcion of drunken driving. Bentrud says that man and a second suspect are believed to have been involved in the thefts. He says no names are being released yet while police work with prosecutors to determine what charges will be filed.
Bentrud says they're still holding the stolen pieces of mail in their possession. He says many people have stopped by to reclaim their stolen mail.
He says volunteers with the RSVP program helped police reconnect a lot of the stolen mail with its rightful owners.
