PELHAM, N.Y. -- Pelham police along with U.S. postal inspectors and several other local police departments charged nine suspects on Friday with stealing mail from blue collection boxes in Westchester County, officials said.

Anthony Monroe and his co-conspirators allegedly stole mail with checks and money orders and renegotiated the checks to themselves, police said.

The subjects were charged with various offenses, including grand larceny, criminal possession of stolen property, criminal possession of a forged instrument and petty larceny, police said.

"This is a great example of law enforcement partnerships working to ensure that America's mail is protected from criminal activity," Inspector in Charge Philip R. Bartlett said in a statement. "We are grateful to the Eastchester Police Department, Westchester County Police Department, Pelham Police Department, and New York City Police Department for their professionalism and their invaluable assistance in this investigation."
