Initially, on December 30, authorities found the packages dumped in a rural area of ​​northeastern Oklahoma, according to their Facebook post about the incident. The packages were believed to have been delivered before Christmas and had left an Amazon facility en route to a U.S. Postal Service facility for delivery. Some of the packages had the items in them, the sheriff’s office said.

MPs also found a garbage bag containing an envelope with an address and a receipt from a local store, the courier said.

Detectives then obtained a search warrant and executed him at a home in Luther, Oklahoma, where they found it filled with thousands of undelivered Amazon packages, which police say were stolen from a local Amazon distribution site.

“Everywhere you could stick anything, we would find packages,” Captain Robert Tye said, in closets, a detached garage, the attic and even an underground storm shelter.

A house in Luther, Oklahoma, was found filled with Amazon packages, which police say were stolen from a local Amazon distribution site.

Two of the three suspects are Cuban nationals in the United States illegally, and detectives are still confirming their identities, according to the Facebook post. Investigators are working with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to confirm identities.

CNN reached out to ICE for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.

The suspects were working with Amazon as third-party drivers, according to Oklahoma County Sheriff Tommie Johnson III. T

The three suspects will face at least 15 counts of possession of stolen property and embezzlement, although other charges may be laid. One of them will also be charged with possession of methamphetamine, according to the sheriff’s office.

“We are grateful for the quick investigative work of the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office and are committed to taking care of any clients who may have been affected by this criminal activity,” said Kelly Nantel, spokesperson from Amazon.

The sheriff’s office returned the packages to Amazon for re-delivery, the Facebook post said.
