ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Bernalillo County deputies have arrested a woman suspected in a rash of mailbox thefts over the past six months.
Erica Ochoa, 32, is accused of getting her hands on master keys to cluster mailboxes and stealing debit or credit cards. She would then cash the checks.
According to a criminal complaint, Ochoa is part of a bigger crime ring. Authorities listened to hundreds of recorded phone calls from inmates at Metropolitan Detention Center who talked about her involvement.
