One of two mail theft fraud suspects moving forward with trial
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Dionta Bratcher is bound over for trial, a court ruled Monday.
Bratcher is one of two Chicago men accused of committing widespread mail theft and fraud across Wisconsin. While Monday’s hearing took place in Brown County court, Bratcher appeared in court via Zoom because he’s currently held at the jail in Manitowoc County, where he was arrested.
Beginning in December of 2022, the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office received numerous complaints of theft of mail, specifically from the industrial park in the Village of Greenville. The sheriff’s office said the suspects were targeting businesses and stealing incoming and outgoing checks from the mailboxes, mainly during the overnight hours on the weekends. The total amount of stolen checks from the industrial park in the Village of Greenville alone surpassed $500,000.
