Harry Edwin Jenkins, Jr., 47, of Cowdrey (near Walden), has been arrested for the mail thefts which occurred last month in rural areas of Larimer County.

Acting on a tip to the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, investigators were able to identify Jenkins as the suspect in the mail thefts and subsequent fraudulent financial transactions.
