From the La Cañada Valley Sun:

A Pacoima man was arraigned last week on charges of mail theft and bank fraud for having cashed stolen checks belonging to two La Cañada Flintridge residents, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman.

Anthony Richard Thurn, 31, was indicted by a grand jury after having been arrested Oct. 2 in Sunland, according to a criminal complaint filed by the U.S. District Court of Central District of California.

Thurn, who is charged with four counts of bank fraud and two counts of possession of stolen mail, remains in custody without bail. He is a parolee with four felony convictions, according the complaint.

“Thurn was arrested and in court was ordered to be held without bond,” said U.S. Attorney’s Office spokesman Thom Mrozek. “The trial is set for Dec. 8.”
