They were spotted last month in a Byron neighborhood by a neighbor who called 911. When the car was located, deputies found over 160 pieces of mail and packages inside, all with Byron and Rochester addresses.

Prendez told investigators Jenkins came up with the plan to steal the mail and he was the one who drove the car.

Prendez has been ordered to make his first court appearance Nov 21. An arrest warrant has been issued for Jenkins, whose whereabouts are unknown.
