Hays, Kan. (AP) -- Investigators in northwest Kansas are hopeful that they've solved a rash of thefts from rural mailboxes.
The Hays Daily News reports the Ellis County sheriff's department arrested two suspects -- a male and a female -- on Tuesday. The suspects' names won't be released until charges are filed.
The thieves hit at least seven mailboxes in rural Ellis County between Hays and Victoria earlier this month.
Investigators believe the thieves were looking for cards and envelopes containing cash. They made off with some pieces of mail and left the rest scattered on the ground.
