A mail theft incident was reported in the 4000 block of Chevy Chase Drive on Feb. 27 at 12 a.m. The victim said that when she went to check her mailbox, it was empty, so she checked her CCTV footage which showed a man exiting the front passenger side of a vehicle and taking the contents of her mailbox. The man was wearing a black shirt and gray-colored pants. Seconds later, he returned to the vehicle and fled the location. The suspect was last seen traveling eastbound on Chevy Chase Drive and out of view.

An identity theft incident was reported in the 1200 block of Descanso Drive on Feb. 26 at 8 a.m. The victim told the deputy that an unknown person used his personal information to apply for an electrical utility account. The victim checked his credit report on Credit Karma on Feb. 26 and saw that he had a Texas-based utility account with Direct Energy LP opened under his name without his consent. The victim was told by a Direct Energy LP representative that one account was opened under his name and had two addresses associated with the account. The suspect who opened the account used the victim’s first name, last name and Social Security number. The representative also told the victim to remove the account and to report charges made under his name in a police report. The victim also told the deputy that the same incident happened to him about six months ago with the same electrical company. The victim then notified the three major credit reporting agencies to prevent the suspect from opening or attempting to open more accounts under his name.
