PATERSON, NJ- Six Paterson men face up to 30 years each in prison following their arrests for stealing checks from USPS mail collection boxes in Passaic, Bergen, Morris, Essex, and Middlesex counties, and elsewhere.
According to the complaint released by U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito, the men are:
Ismael Alicea, Jr., 25
Yerrisson Garcia-Rodriguez, 23
Jerry Lake-Rodriguez, 25
Johan Lake-Rodriguez, 26
Brayan Ulloa-Ulloa, 24
The statement reads that together they stole at least $300,000 worth of checks and deposited them into various bank accounts. Most of the thefts occurred late at night, at times with the use of a pry bar.
Four of the men made their first court appearance on Monday and Lake-Rodriguez, already in state custody, will make his initial appearance later this week.
Quezada remains at large.
