SAN ANTONIO – A man was caught with stolen mail from dozens of people in Castle Hills, including stolen stimulus checks and forged checks worth more than $100,000, according to police.

A caller reported the man around 7:30 a.m. Thursday after he was spotted stopping at mailboxes in his black BMW, police said.

An officer dispatched to the area found the man parked in an alley with mail from multiple addresses in his car.

When asked by officers why the man had so much mail in his car, he responded that it belonged to his friends, but he couldn’t remember where his friends lived, police said.

The man, who was not identified by CHPD, also had a homemade United States Postal Service postal key.

He was arrested and faces several state and federal charges.

Police said the stolen checks and mail could belong to more than 30 possible victims.
