They also said, according to the statement, that they would either sell or exchange the merchandise for drugs. According to the statement, they admitted that they stole the credit cards from Santa Fe County residents' mailboxes late at night or early in the morning. Deputies are still investigating who else might have been involved in the scheme, the statement says.
