MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. -- Four Georgia men have been arrested and are accused of stealing mail in Martin County.

MCSO Air 1 observed a vehicle perusing in a residential neighborhood aroun 1:15 a.m.

Surveillance video shows the car driving from mailbox to mailbox along Waaler Street and removing the contents.

The video also stopped at a dumpster, where much of the "unwanted" mail was disposed of.

Deputies found stolen mail from homes and businesses on Waaler Street, Jay Street, and Commerce Avenue.

24-year old Demetrius Evans, 26-year old Darius Evans, 32-year old Joshua Griffith, and 29-year old Joseph Porchea were arrested.

Porchea (who initially gave a false name to deputies) has a warrant out of Lee County. He is being held without bond and will be transported back to Lee County to satisfy that warrant.

Both Evans brothers have warrants out of Georgia, but have bonds because Georgia will not extradite for those warrants. Joshua Griffith has a $1000.00 bond.
