Police arrested a woman Saturday suspected of mail theft in Spokane’s North Central neighborhood.
Sarha Hollowell, 32, was taken into custody after neighbors reported seeing the woman looking through mail boxes and taking mail in the 700 block of West Knox Avenue, police said in a news release. Officers in the area detained Hollowell as she was trying to walk away.
After searching Hollowell, officers found meth, in a addition to several pieces of mail from different residences, police said. She was also in possession of several fraudulent checks written to her, all suspected of being forged.
Hollowell was booked into Spokane County Jail at about 7 p.m. She faces several felony charges, including forgery, theft, and possession of meth.
