ModBee reports:

Turlock Police found stolen property belonging to dozens of victims when they conducted a probation search on Tuesday at the home of a woman who last month was arrested on suspicion of breaking into a mailbox.

Detectives, along with Community Outreach Response and Engagement officers and Stanislaus County probation officers, searched the home of 33-year-old Cynthia Gomez in the 100 block of Starr Avenue, according to Sgt. Neil Cervenka.

Detectives located four people in the home and dozens of items, including credit cards, drivers licenses, social security cards, birth certificates, checks, bank books, mail and a laptop computer, none of which belonged to anyone in the home. Detectives also found notebooks with the personal information of many different people, Cervenka said.

  One Response to “Stolen personal information found at home of Turlock woman”

  1. This is one of those behavior modification things we need to continue to educate on. While it may be a staple of American life, the idea of putting personal, confidential and sensitive information in an envelope, placing it in a roadside box, raising a red flag to notify anyone who passes by that there’s something in there, and THEN walking away just seems silly anymore. I do understand that crims break into locked mailboxes all the time, and USPS workers can also raid PO boxes, but it’s all about assessing and reducing your personal threat landscape.
