MILPITAS — A 45-year-old Sunol woman was arrested last week on suspicion of identity theft after she was found with a U.S. Postal Service master key and stolen mail, according to police.
Leah Kaye Costa was taken into custody for a warrant on Dec. 23 outside a 7-Eleven at 15 S. Abbot Ave., where officers found her gray 2004 BMW illegally parked in a handicap stall.
Police said Costa appeared to be under the influence of a controlled substance at the time.
A search turned up methamphetamine, a U.S. Postal Service master key, homemade postal keys, and mail and checks belonging to victims throughout the Bay Area, according to police.
In addition to the warrant, Costa was booked at the Santa Clara County Main Jail in San Jose on suspicion of possession of narcotics, being under the influence of a controlled substance and identity theft.
