RPD Bike Teams Recovers Stolen Mail, ID’s During Traffic Stop

A stop for traffic violations in Downtown Redding led to multiple counts of identity theft. The RPD Bike Team made the stop on California Street Thursday afternoon. The driver, 35-year-old Kyle Hix, was on probation so the car was searched. Officers reported finding multiple drivers licenses, bank cards, mail and other personal paperwork that didn’t belong to Nix or his passenger. A follow-up investigation apparently showed the items had been stolen from mailboxes in Shasta and Tehama Counties. Some victims had reported the thefts while others hadn’t noticed.
