Troopers Nab Mail Thief in Sterling

On Tuesday morning Alaska State Troopers were alerted to a woman in a small gray vehicle going through multiple mailboxes in the Robinson Loop area in Sterling at 9:10 am.

Troopers responded to the area and located the vehicle driving on the Sterling Highway. The vehicle was pulled over and the driver, 25-year-old Elizabeth Miller of Sterling, was contacted by troopers. A background check of Miller was initiated and it was found that she had an active warrant for her arrest for failing to appear in a February DUI case. 

Troopers requested and received a search warrant for the vehicle and when the search was carried out on the vehicle stolen mail was found.

Online court records reveal that Miller has multiple open cases on several charges of theft and criminal trespass.

Miller was arrested and transported to Kenai where she was remanded to the Wildwood Pretrial Facility on the warrant and Mail Theft.
