A combined effort from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office, the Castle Rock Police Department, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department and the United States Postal Inspection Service led to the capture of Danielle McDaniel and Michael McDaniel for stealing from numerous mailboxes throughout Douglas County. After all that and with more charges likely to be filed, the judge released both defendants on their own recognizance; i.e. their "promise" that they will show up to all of their court dates. Yeah, they sound like upstanding citizens. Way to look out for the citizens of the community, Judge!
Here's the press release from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office:
