Summary

On Friday, April 22, 2016, at approximately, 3:40 a.m., Deputy Rusk from the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department witnessed two males use a pry tool, to break into a UPS drop box to steal packages and mail. When the males noticed Deputy Rusk, they quickly dropped the stolen packages and ran to their vehicle. Deputy Rusk conducted a traffic stop on their vehicle and found burglary tools, sticky traps attached to a rope (which are used to fish mail from UPS drop boxes), stolen packages, and over fifty stolen checks. The majority of the stolen mail and checks were from Rancho Cucamonga and Upland addresses. The vehicle was also found to have hidden compartments under the rear seat, filled with stolen mail.

Brothers, Leo and Andrew Bojorquez, were arrested and booked into the West Valley Detention Center for identity theft and possession of burglary tools. With the dramatic increase in mail theft, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department urges residents to use extreme caution when sending or receiving banking or personal information through the mail. Mail thieves use this information to forge checks and open fraudulent banking and credit card accounts. Anyone with additional information regarding this incident is urged to contact the Rancho Cucamonga Police Department (909) 477-2800.
