ROCHESTER, Minn. – A 20-year-old woman is facing a charge of mail theft after she allegedly stole a bottle of pills from a mailbox.
Nicole Thorson, or Rochester, was arrested after a neighbor near the 3600 block of 8 ½ St. NW saw a woman going through a group of four mailboxes around 8 p.m. Tuesday. The neighbor was able to take a picture of the vehicle and license plate, which led authorities to a male who said his girlfriend was using the car.
Thorson denied stealing mail before saying she only took one item – a prescription bottle – and it was found one pill was missing. Thorson is also being charged with fifth-degree possession of a controlled substance.
Thorson allegedly told officers that she didn’t know her grandmother’s address and was trying to find where she lived.
