GRAYSON COUNTY, Tex. -- Two criminals charged with identity theft and burglary have been arrested in Grayson County.

Melissa Schulte, 41, from Whitewright, is charged with stealing and receiving stolen checks.

Jeffery Gilbreath, 30, from Rockwall, is charged with three counts of burglary.

Both were arrested at a house in Savoy on Friday after investigators found drug paraphernalia, weapons, checkbooks, and stolen mail.

Investigators say they will be tracking down the owners of the mail and checkbooks to determine if they have been victims of identity fraud or theft.

Sgt. Rickey Wheeler of the Grayson County Sheriff's Office says right now neither suspect faces federal charges.

"There could possibly be more arrests, based on the identity theft part of it. We're looking at more video of different stores, places where checks were cashed. When they come back to the bank, they have a signature, that tells us where they were," Wheeler said.

Investigators say the mail and checkbooks were stolen from at least 15 people. Now they are working to determine if those people have been victims of identity theft or fraud.
