The Associated Press - January 12, 2018 11:28 am

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Tulsa police say one of two people arrested this week in a money fraud case was in possession of a special key that can open outgoing mail boxes in the city.

Police arrested the duo — Matthew Lee Myers and Justa Dawn Richardson — on allegations they had cashed stolen money orders, according to a probable cause affidavit. Officers located Myers, 45, and Richardson, 37, on Tuesday at Knights Inn, located in the 5000 block of East Skelly Drive.

The probable cause affidavit said the pair cashed stolen money orders worth nearly $2,800.

Police said Myers had a master key that opens blue U.S. Postal Service boxes.

Officers booked Myers into Tulsa Jail on three complaints of uttering a forged instrument, possessing a false identification document and outstanding warrants. Richardson was booked on three complaints of uttering a forged instrument and several outstanding warrants.

Myers is being held in lieu of a $7,000 bond. Richardson is being held in lieu of an $8,000 bond.
