Reports Of Mail Theft Leads To Arrest

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE COUNTY, Wash. - Detectives with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office, working with investigators from the United States Postal Inspection Service, arrested a 27-year-old man who was caught trying to pry open a post office box.

The investigation has been happening since the beginning of the year when numerous mail thefts were reported in and around the Regal Post Office on the south hill. This prompted ITF and USPS investigators to set up surveillance at the Post Office, and on the night of February 26th, investigators saw 27-year-old Bart Bonebright kneeling by an outside blue mailbox, then actually enter the lobby of the Post Office. Investigators moved in closer and saw Bonebright prying at a Post Office Box with a knife. He was immediately taken into custody without incident.

Detectives found Bonebright to also be in possession of meth and he was taken to jail for Felony Possession of a Controlled Substance.  The investigation into the mail theft complaints is ongoing and being handled by the United States Postal Inspection Service.
