Mounds of stolen mail found in desert near Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Piles of stolen mail were found by a man riding his ATV in the Nellis Dunes on Monday.

Terry Snyder said he found the pile hidden along a ridge and immediately remembered calling the Postal Inspection Service, a federal police force that investigates mail related crime, in early August for help collecting the burnt remains of the first pile.

“I told them it’s going to be real windy so they came out,” Snyder said. “We picked up the important mail and left basically the ads. Stuff like that.”

Shad Matheny with the Postal Inspection Service said the organization can’t comment on active investigations, but anyone who finds stolen mail should turn it into their local post office.
