Man charged with stealing delivered mail
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is facing charges for theft of mail after it had been delivered to a home.
Terry Lee Jecker, 48, was taken into custody on November 18 after a warrant for his arrest was issued.
According to the warrant, on November 7 neighbors saw Jecker take a package from the porch of a home after it had been delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. The witness confronted Jecker, but went down an alley.
The witness was able to give police a good description of the man, but when officers located and talked to Jecker he did not have the package on him. Charges were filed against Jecker after police reviewed surveillance view of the theft and were able to make a positive identification.
Jecker is charged with theft of mail matter and receiving stolen property. He was released from Louisville Metro Corrections just after Noon today.
