A traffic stop leads to the recovery of stolen mail from two states

WHITE CO. – Wednesday, with the assistance of the US Postal Inspection Service, Trooper Stinson completed an investigation into mail theft that spanned across two states.

On December 1, 2022, Trooper Stinson was patrolling Bicycle Bridge Road in the area of Springboro Road. He then observed a 2013 Cadillac ATS briefly stop at a mailbox in front of a residence, then continue driving. As Trooper Stinson attempted to stop the Cadillac for a traffic violation, the driver quickly turned into the driveway of a residence on Bicycle Bridge Road north of Springboro Road. The driver was later identified as 28-year-old Sean Stoeckinger, from Mishawaka, IN.

Stoeckinger exited the Cadillac and attempted to hide items on the front porch of the residence. Trooper Stinson later discovered the items Stoeckinger attempted to hide were stolen.

Great Job Trooper Stinson! The USPIS needs it’s Local and State partners in the fight against mail theft. The USPIS can’t be at every mailbox and in every city/county so I’m sure they rely on the good men and women of local/state law enforcement who work hard every day in their communities. Thank you again Trooper Stinson for your service and assisting the USPIS & USPS in arresting a mail theft suspect.
