DURHAM, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Deputies arrested two people for stealing more than 100 pieces of mail on Dec. 23.
Just before 2 a.m. on Monday, officials got a call to Lott Road in Durham where they say a suspect was seen possibly taking mail from mailboxes.
As officials approached in their patrol cars, they say the driver, Jeremy Blumlein, fled, turning down different streets.
Officials say as he turned on to 16th Street, the sergeant saw the vehicle had rolled over.
Both uninjured, Breanna Maier and Blumlein were found in the car.
The sergeant searched the car and found just over one hundred packages and say envelopes had been addressed to approximately 56 people and 37 different addresses in both Durham and Chico.
Also in the car, officials say they found methamphetamine and a wallet containing multiple gift cards, as well as hundreds of dollars of cash.
Blumlein was arrested for felony reckless evading, identity theft, mail theft, violation of probation and possession of a controlled substance.
Maier was arrested for identity theft, mail theft and violation of probation.
