    A Lynnwood woman is in jail after being accused of stealing mail from more than 30 victims.

    Police said they arrested Aja Mullin, 29, in a QFC parking lot in Bothell after spotting hundreds of pieces of mail in her car.

    Mullin told the officer the mail belonged to her 11 roommates. When investigators asked the names of the roommates authorities said Mullin had trouble answering and only gave first names.

    Victims were targeted in Redmond, Kirkland, and Mountlake Terrace.

    Lee Kolsky and his 95-year-old mother had boxes of checks stolen.

    Police say Mullin wrote more than $4,000-worth of stolen checks.  

    Terry Montague had her mail stolen in Kirkland. Luckily Montague pays for a secured mailbox at another location. The only mail that goes to her mailbox at home is junk mail.

    Mullin appeared in Snohomish County Superior Court on Thursday. Her bail was set at $2,500. Mullin did not have a criminal history, but prosecutors did say she has two other cases currently in litigation in Snohomish County.  She’s under investigation of possession of stolen mail, identity theft, forgery and unlawful possession of payment instruments (the checks).
