SUMMARY: On Sunday, November 5, 2017, at approximately 10:00 pm, deputies from the Highland Police Department were in the area of Palm and the 210 freeway when they located a stolen vehicle parked in the driveway at 1986 North Palm in the City of San Bernardino, just north of the Highland City border. They maintained surveillance, and when the driver did not return to the vehicle, they contacted the residents. As they entered the yard, they observed another vehicle, a white Mercedes Benz R350 station wagon, that matched the description of a vehicle that had been observed on surveillance video in East Highlands breaking into community mailboxes. Deputies contacted Consuelo DELAYO and Elma Rosa ALVAREZ and detained them. A large Ziploc bag containing mail addressed to people in East Highland was seen by deputies.

A search warrant was obtained, and several boxes of stolen mail, counterfeit credit cards, laptop computers, social security cards, checks, and identifications were found. There were numerous items that were determined fraudulently obtained with stolen or counterfeit credit, to include clothing, the house rental, appliances, cable TV and cell phones. A search of the vehicle located stolen US Postal Service mailbox keys, and a stolen Postal Route Summary Report for the victimized addresses in East Highland

DELAYO is currently on AB109 PRCS Felony Probation for VC10851(a) and PC496d(a). As a part of Governor Jerry Brown’s Realignment Plan, or Assembly Bill 109, to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court decision requiring the state to lower its prison population by 30,000; offenders with non-violent, non-sexual and non-serious convictions will serve reduced sentences in county jails and be placed on local supervision through county Probation.

ALVAREZ has assumed the identity of one of the victims and created credit accounts, cell phone accounts, and fraudulent tax returns. She recently signed rental agreements for the residence in the victim’s name. Deputies are attempting to contact the victims. If you have had your mail stolen in Highland and are the victim of identity theft, you are asked to contact Detective Chris Morsch at the Highland Police Department.
