SALT LAKE CITY, Ut  — Police are investigating following a rash of mail theft in a Taylorsville neighborhood.

More than a dozen residents have filed police reports.

The neighborhood in question is near 4700 South and 3700 West in Taylorsville. The calls started coming into police when neighbors woke up to find bills, personal mail and magazines scattered all over the neighborhood.

One resident says she caught the suspects on surveillance camera, and that it’s a man and woman working together.

Meanwhile, police are asking anyone with additional information to please contact Unified Police.

According to Utah state law, mail theft occurs if a person knowingly deprives another of their mail by destroying, hiding or embezzling it. Mail theft also occurs if a person other than the intended recipient receives the mail by fraud or deception.

Mail theft is a second-degree felony if the value exceeds $5,000. It is a third-degree felony if mail is valued between $1,000 and $5,000. At the very least, mail theft is a misdemeanor.
