Charges have been filed in Ellis County District Court against two individuals from Hays accused of looting rural mail boxes. The suspects, 32-year-old Jeremy Tryon and 36-year-old Heather Page-Hilton, both have been charged with seven counts of mail theft in Ellis County.
Hilton is also charged with possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and driving under the influence of a drug or combination of drugs.
The two were arrested Dec. 24 following a tip from a resident who called the Ellis County Sheriff’s Department to report suspicious activity around mailboxes east of Hays. Preliminary hearings have not yet been scheduled.
