Federal and local authorities are contacting about 80 identity theft victims in Butte County after a local man was caught stealing mail last week.

Chico resident Brandon Amundsen, 24, was arrested Thursday north of Durham after sheriff’s deputies allegedly found him with several pieces of stolen mail. ID cards and checks belonging to others, along with undisclosed amounts of heroin and methamphetamine were found in Amundsen’s SUV.

Amundsen had been on probation in another matter. His bail was set at $49,000.

Sheriff’s deputies and postal inspectors will be contacting victims.
