2 Gulfport men arrested for stealing mail carts

Posted: Updated:

GULFPORT, Miss. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A father and son face charges that they stole aluminum carts from the U.S. Postal Service, cut them up for scrap and sold the metal.

Gulfport residents 51-year-old John Wendell Boyles and 24-year-old Nicholas Alan Boyles were arraigned in federal court Thursday after an April indictment was unsealed. U.S. Magistrate Judge John Roper set bond for each man at $25,000.

A lawyer for the men couldn't immediately be reached Friday.

The indictment alleges the men stole the containers - used to load mail onto trucks - and sold material to a scrapyard 21 times over two years.

This case is set for trial before U.S. District Judge Sul Ozerden on July 7. Each man faces up to 15 years in federal prison, and fines of up to $250,000 per count.
