On the afternoon of February 16, Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office arrested Dennis Ray Singletary Jr. (47) of Springfield on numerous charges of Theft of Mail Matter. Deputies responded to a witness complaint of a suspicious vehicle stopping at mailboxes along Raywick Highway. A short time later Chief Deputy Sheriff Ray Gardner observed a vehicle fitting the description stopped at a mailbox on St. Mary’s Road. Further investigation found that Singletary was operating the vehicle and had in his possession a large amount of stolen mail from various addresses throughout Marion County. Officials with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Postal Service were notified and were able to recover an additional large amount of stolen mail at the Singletary home in Springfield, Ky. The Marion County Sheriff’s Office continues to work with the Postal Service to make sure the victims of these thefts are notified and receive their mail as soon as possible. Sheriff Jimmy Clements asks for your patience as they sort through this process. Deputy Sheriff Ray Gardner and Courtney Deering continue with the investigation. Singletary was lodged in the Marion County Detention Center.
