Two wanted in Fergus Falls mail, identity thefts

FERGUS FALLS, Minn. – Law enforcement here are looking for two people in connection to stealing mail and using it for identity theft, according to a WDAY news report.

Police say Justin Lee Feldt and Jessie Ann Pechia took blank checks and other mail from at least six homes here, WDAY said.

According to the WDAY report:

The two would take blank checks from credit card mailings and use them to deposit money into their own accounts at Affinity Plus Credit Union here.

The two then allegedly worked their way down Interstate 94, writing more false checks and stealing more mail in the Anoka area, police said. Police now believe the two are somewhere in Wisconsin, passing counterfeit bills.

Feldt pleaded guilty to 35 counts of mail theft in Becker County in 2006.

Police recommend checking credit card accounts and contacting local law enforcement if anything appears suspicious.
