Fallbrook CA— Fallbrook Patrol and Crime Suppression Team deputies have arrested two subjects for a string of mail thefts in Fallbrook on August 18, 2015, after catching one of the subjects with their hand in the proverbial cookie jar, or in this case a mailbox.

The two subjects were later identified as Katlyn Seibert, a 22-year-old resident of Riverside, and Nathan Bonds, a 28-year-old resident of Riverside.
After initially lying about their names, deputies were able to identify the two subjects, who were subsequently arrested for various charges related to their providing false identity to the deputies.
A later search of the vehicle revealed that Seibert and Bonds had stolen mail from numerous locations in Fallbrook, along with other portions of southern California.
