Beaverton man found with stolen mail from Scappoose
A Beaverton man was arrested last Tuesday, March 6, after Scappoose police officers found stolen mail and methamphetamine during a traffic stop.
Andrey MacCracken, 26, was stopped by an officer on EM Watts Road near Scappoose Middle School after the office noticed a Washington license plate on the car MacCracken was driving was stolen, according to police.
During the traffic stop, an officer found several pieces of stolen mail from residents in Scappoose, as well as the Portland area, in addition to drugs and a butterfly knife, Scappoose Police Chief Norm Miller stated in a news release Wednesday.
MacCracken was arrested and booked into the Columbia County Jail.
He was later indicted on 21 counts of mail theft, three counts of ID theft, misdemeanor possession of methamphetamine and one count each of forgery, theft and unlawful use of a vehicle.
The indictment against MacCracken indicates he stole mail from mailboxes in various areas.
MacCracken has since been released from jail with a no contact order that includes a list of 22 individual victims and two businesses, including the Scappoose Senior Center.
"The Scappoose Police Department will be following up with all the residences to return the mail," Miller stated.
