On Dec. 30, Stratford officers arrested Kenyata Williams, 32, and Andre Salmon, 31, for larceny and trespass charges after a detective saw them stealing mail from residential mail boxes on East Broadway.

Found in their possession was mail from several homes located in the area. Postal inspectors were notified and responded as the pair may be linked to other mail thefts in the state.

Williams was charged with five counts of sixth-degree larceny, five counts of criminal trespass and interfering with an officer. He was also found to be on probation and he had an outstanding warrant for armed robbery in the state of Florida.

Salmon was charged with conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny. He was also on probation and was subsequently charged with violation of probation and remanded to custody by probation officers.

Hmmmm. Supposedly FedEx delivered a package to me Saturday, but I did not receive it. I'd wondered if they left it at the wrong house. But maybe it was "lifted?"

We make it too easy for these derelicts. Everyone should INSIST on signing for packages, or go pick them up. These lowlife are out there looking for opportunities to steal from you!

Thank God for the Stratford Police for continually working to protect us.

I understand that these people are garbage but what I do not understand is why they feel they have the right to take from others who go and earn a hard days work pay and they just get to steal. I firmly believe that they need to bring back the chain gang and put these people to work. Let them fell and see what it is like to work hard and any $ they may get, gets taken away from them. No smoking, cable TV, Icecream, no nothing. You want to steal?????? You want to take from others?????? You get Nothing!!!!!!!! We as Americans need to start standing up for ourselves... An eye for an eye.

Let's see how much of a penalty these two fools get. I guess nobody ever told them that the one thing you don't mess with is the U.S. Mail. One of them must have been born on April 2nd, 1 day too late and the other wouldn't know which way the elevator was going if you gave him 2 guesses.

Thanks John J., that just gave me a chuckle!!!

Anne, its funny howI only see you calling black people names on this police blotter? I wonder why you are picking on one race? I was attacked for commenting on one of your posts on MLK day. I didn't see anyone comment on the white guy from Elm Street caught driving drunk. Lots of anti-semitic comments against me though like tmc.

You poor, delusional man. I almost feel sorry for you. Say hi to Luanne for me.

Truth brings out anger followed by name calling, typical of an opportunist when exposed. I challenge you again, Anne, go help a minority rather then targeting African Americans with name calling when they make a mistake. Oy Vey

This has to be a troll; no one is THIS stupid.

Tmc - your name calling speaks loud to the amount of intelligence you lack. Typical opportunist who ends with name calling. Textbook stuff here. Tmc, instead of your attacking me because I am Jewish like you have in the past, go and use your time to help someone in need. You will feel better about yourself and you won't have to attack Jewish people.

^This is some of the weakest trolling I've ever seen; can't you do any better? You are covered in failsauce. Give up and try Reddit
