Two are arrested following sting operation

Two people are under arrest after trying to steal packages that were part of a sting operation.

The U.S. Postal Service organized the operation and the Yakima Police Department helped arrest the thieves.

According to our media partners at the Yakima Herald the packages were filled with a lump of coal and high- tech trackers.

Postal service employees were monitoring the package trackers and that’s when the police department was called in to assist.

The two suspects were arrested on suspicion of theft and receiving stolen property.
