Mail theft victims sought
Sheriff releases photos of suspects
HESPERIA • The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department released photos of three men charged with stealing mail from the Hesperia post office, in an effort to seek additional victims.
A witness called 911 in the evening of Jan. 23 after observing men stealing mail out of receptacles in front of the post office in the 17200 block of Olive Street, Sgt. Doug Hubbard said. Hesperia deputies arrested the three men at the scene.
The District Attorney’s office filed charges of receiving stolen property against each of the following men, according to online court records:
• Leo Bojorquez, 22
• Andrew Bojorquez, 23
• Pablo Hernandez, 22
Leo Bojorquez was released on bail Saturday, according to the Sheriff’s Department’s website, and is scheduled to be arraigned in Victorville court onMarch 28. Andrew Bojorquez and Hernandez, who are held on $100,000 bail, are scheduled to appear in Victorville court Tuesday for a pre-preliminary hearing.
The Hesperia sheriff’s station is asking the public if they have seen any of the defendants near mail receptacles. Officials believe these men have been involved in similar cases of mail theft, identity theft and check fraud throughout the desert, according to a sheriff’s news release.
