On Monday, police in Torrance, California, announced the discovery of hundreds of mail-in recall ballots that were found along with drugs, guns, and other illegal things in a felon’s car.
Officials said they found at least 300 unopened mail-in ballots for the California governor’s recall election in the felon’s car, which was found parked outside a 7-Eleven, KTLA-TV reported.
A police news release said officers also found a loaded firearm, methamphetamine, thousands of pieces of other mail, a scale, and multiple California driver’s licenses and credit cards that were in other people’s names. Police said the suspect — who is a felon — was found asleep in the car and was also in possession of Xanax pills.
“Investigators are trying to figure out how the election ballots ended up in the suspect’s vehicle and what their intent was in having them,” the police statement added. “This is an isolated incident and is not related to any additional thefts of election ballots.”
The man was arrested and hit with a variety of charges, including gun, drug, and theft of mail charges.
The police department added that it had teamed up with the U.S. Postal Service and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Offices Public Integrity Unit to investigate the matter.
Police are unsure of why the felon had the ballots in his possession and what he intended to do with them.
This is yet another story showing what a bad idea and how insecure mail-in ballots really are.
