Posted on 30th June 2016 at 09:16

Columbia County reports filing dozens of charges in connection with a series of mail theft incidents that have been taking place near Rainier. The St. Helens Chronicle reports that 26 year-old Andrew Lee Jones and 37 year-old Linda Marie Strawn of St. Helens are both facing more than 40 separate counts, charged with identity theft, mail theft and burglary, along with multiple counts of meth possession and delivery. It’s reported that the pair was actually arrested back on May 23, after search warrants were served at two locations in Saint Helens, where stolen property, mail, drugs and other items were seized. The multi-count indictment was handed down last week. It’s noted that others are involved in this ring, and other arrests are expected. Bail for each currently exceeds $600,000.
