Two teenagers had heard on television that the President of the United States, Donald Trump, was going to send checks to the homes of all Americans to alleviate the effects of the coronavirus health crisis. So they thought about stealing the mail from some of their neighbors to see if the famous help check was in some of those envelopes.
Finally, things did not go well. The police arrested the two young men in connection with a series of mail thefts in a Hialeah neighborhood, adjacent to Miami.
Several local media confirmed that the authorities had arrested Jonathan Perera, 19 years old, and Ramses Fernandez-Rodriguez, 18, early Sunday morning.
Officials in the investigation said officials said two men had stolen their mail from dozens of homes near West Fifth Place and 65th Drive. The authorities are asking the population to exercise extreme caution since at this time, in which many people are ordering packages through the internet, there are criminals who take advantage of the situation to rob in the gardens of the houses.
Police said they found a large amount of mail in the suspects’ bags, including personal items that could have been used to commit fraud.
