Two people, already in jail, charged with theft of 500 pieces of mail

The Amherst County Sheriff's Office said two people have been charged for stealing more than 500 pieces of mail.

In December 2018, the sheriff's office said they started getting complaints from residents, primarily in Monroe and Elon areas, about mail missing from their mail boxes and checks that had been fraudulently cashed in surrounding counties.

As a result of the complaints, investigators recovered more than 500 pieces of stolen mail from 145 different residences in Amherst County.

A total of 196 warrants were issued for Charles Branham, Jr. and Lauren Branham on April 12, 2019 for larceny of mail.
