TULSA, Okla. – Tulsa police say one of two people arrested this week in a money fraud case was in possession of a special key that can open outgoing mail boxes in the city.
A probable cause affidavit said the pair cashed stolen money orders worth nearly $2,800. One of the suspects, identified as Matthew Lee Myers, had a master key that opens blue U.S. Postal Service boxes.
The Tulsa World reported that, according to police, they found several stolen postal service crates when they raided a hotel room this week. Police say Myers admitted to stealing money orders from the mail.
Myers is named in three complaints alleging the uttering of a forged instrument and possessing a false ID. The other suspect, Justa Dawn Richardson, is charged with uttering forged instruments.
