An investigation into U.S. Mail letter box break-ins has led a federal grand jury to charge an ex-felon with a variety of offenses, including possession of ammunition.
Tony Nhiachong Khang, 28, a resident of Sacramento's Natomas area, also is charged with bank fraud, aggravated identification theft, access device fraud, possession of stolen U.S. mail, possession for fraudulent use of identification documents of others, and possession of stolen Postal Service keys, according to a federal Department of Justice news release. Khang is to appear before U.S. Magistrate Carolyn K. Delaney for arraignment Monday.
According to court documents, the investigation arose after the U.S. Postal Inspection Service received numerous reports of U.S. Mail letter box break-ins in the Sacramento County area. On April 18, agents with a federal search warrant searched Khang's Natomas residence. He was found to possess ammunition, stolen U.S. mail, stolen credit card and bank account access numbers, and a number of identification documents belonging to other people, according to court documents. Because he had been previously convicted of felony burglary and felony vehicle theft, Khang was prohibited from possessing ammunition.
The case resulted from an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Sacramento Police Department.
