On February 22, 2020, Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded the 8300 block of Atlee Road for a possible mail larceny in progress at a church. While en-route, Deputies were advised that a church member reported a suspicious vehicle parked by the church’s mail box for an inordinate amount of time. The suspect vehicle was intercepted by deputies. During the course of the investigation, checks belonging to Hanover County churches were recovered from the vehicle. The occupants of the vehicle were arrested (one adult male and two male juveniles). The following warrants were obtained:

Regionally, this type of criminal activity has been on the increase. Getting the word out about these types of criminal activities is critical. None of this would have been possible without a concerned church member calling in the suspicious activity. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank the media for the recent coverage of the crime spree. We would also like to thank the U.S. Postal Inspection Service for their partnership and continued hard work on the matter. A special thanks to the members of the Sheriff’s Office Worship Watch. The Worship Watch program involves 162 churches in Hanover County. If your organization wants to be involved, please contact the Sheriff’s Office at 804-365-6140. Anyone who believes they are a victim of mail theft can also report it to the Postal Inspectors by calling 877-876-2455.
