A 24-year-old man faces larceny and other charges related to the alleged theft of mail.
Corey Roberts, 24, of Main Street, Monroe, was charged last week with third-degree criminal attempt at larceny, second-degree identity theft (impersonation), criminal impersonation and trafficking in personal identifying information.
Roberts was taken into custody at the Bridgeport Probation Office on a valid arrest warrant stemming from a December 2013 case in Westport.
Roberts is suspected of stealing residents' mail from their homes and using the information obtained to access their banking and credit card accounts, according to a police report.
He was released on a $20,000 bond and is scheduled to appear Dec. 29 in Norwalk Superior Court.
