Early Morning Mail Theft Suspects Arrested

In the early morning hours of September 22, a citizen in the 3700 block of Red Hawk Ct saw two subjects walking down the street and looking in mail boxes.  The citizen reported seeing the subjects leaving the area in a vehicle.  Officers arrived in the area and located a vehicle matching the description provided by the citizen.

Officers contacted the two subjects and found them to be in possession of stolen mail, burglary tools, and drug paraphernalia.  The two subjects were arrested and booked at Ventura County Main Jail for the above crimes as well as conspiracy to commit a crime.  The two subjects were identified as forty-two year old Reseda resident Edgar Tellez and twenty-eight year old Panorama City resident Luis Arellano.

The Simi Valley Police Department would like to extend their appreciation to the observant citizen that saw something suspicious and reported it.  We would also like to remind citizens to remember to remove all mail from exterior mailboxes as soon as practicable.
