No contest plea for mail theft

Christina Proctor

A Sacramento man charged with second-degree burglary in connection with a November mail theft from a South Lake Tahoe mail service business pleaded no contest Wednesday to a lesser felony charge of receiving stolen property.

Geoff M. Glass, 31, could be sentenced to up to a year in county jail. Sentencing was set for April 8.

Glass was implicated in the burglary by his alleged accomplice, Jennifer Lynn Jackson, 29, of Carmichael, Calif. Jackson is facing prosecution in Douglas County. She failed to appear Dec. 23 for an entry-of-plea hearing and there is a bench warrant out for her arrest.

Mail from more than 65 South Lake Tahoe victims was discovered in Jackson’s car. The mail was stolen from Mail Bag and More on Nov. 27. Jackson and Glass escaped federal charges because the mail became private property once it was delivered to Mail Bag and More.

Jackson was arrested Dec. 3 after allegedly trying to cash a forged check at the Stateline Bank of America. Glass was reportedly in Jackson’s car at the bank and fled the scene before deputies arrived. Glass was later apprehended at his mother’s home in Sacramento.

Deputy District Attorney Michael Atwell said victims in the case should continue to check for unauthorized credit card purchases or unauthorized credit cards applied for in their names and notify police of any such activity.
