Women Accused Of Stealing Checks From Mailbox

Two Pueblo women are accused of stealing checks from a mailbox, and then using the checks at local stores.
Jamie Kathleen Wetmore and Bree Agee have been arrested.
Agee is being held on a theft charge. Wetmore is accused of identity theft.
The investigation started in December when the checks were stolen.
There was a big break in the case when investigators learned that some of the stolen checks had been used at stores in Pueblo. Deputies were able to use surveillance video from those stores to identify two possible suspects.
Deputies executed a search warrant on a home in the 1700 block of Morrison Ave. in Pueblo on January 6th. Items purchased with the stolen checks, fake Colorado I.D. cards, and fake checks were found inside the home, according to the sheriff's office.
The Pueblo County Sheriff's office says the investigation is ongoing, and more arrests are likely.
