Officers responding to a reported theft at the Lehigh Shopping Center around 3:20 a.m. Oct. 1 were advised that a security monitoring service observed on camera three suspects taking mail from a USPS drop box at the shopping center. A description of the suspects and the vehicle they were operating was relayed to officers, who began checking the area.
A short time later, a vehicle matching that description was observed by patrol officers in the area of West Broad Street and 16th Avenue. The officers initiated a traffic stop of the vehicle, and through investigation positively identified the suspects as being involved in the reported thefts. The suspects were identified and charged as follows:
Tyler Harvey of South Richmond Hill, NY, Richard Roseway of Cambria Heights, NY, and Elijah Walthour of Richmond Hill, NY, are charged with theft, possessing instruments of crime and other individual charges.
This investigation remains ongoing and in cooperation with the USPS Postal Inspectors Office.
