Anchorage man admits to stealing mail, credit cards from Hillside residents
An Anchorage man pleaded guilty to charges of mail theft and credit card fraud in federal court Wednesday, according to a release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Evan Mullen, 28, admitted to stealing mail and packages from multiple homes in Anchorage’s Hillside neighborhood from December 2015 until his arrest in February 2016.
His main target was credit cards, and he attempted to gather about $10,000 in gift cards, cash and other goods, according to U.S. Attorney Aunnie Steward.
“There were more than 10 victims of Mullen’s crimes including those who had their mail stolen and banks who absorbed the loss from the stolen credit cards,” the release states.
Mullen is scheduled to be sentenced on on July 21, 2016 and faces a possible 15 years in prison and $250,000 fine.
Hillside residents provided information and tips that played a crucial role in Mullen’s eventual arrest, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
