MURPHYSBORO — Jackson County State’s Attorney, Joseph A. Cervantez, announced today that Dylan J. Moutria, age 31, of Murphysboro, Illinois, has been charged with 43 Counts of Possession of Stolen Mail, each count is a Class 4 Felony, for multiple incidents that occurred on or around August 17, 2021. He is currently being held in the Jackson County Jail with bond set at $100,000. He is scheduled to appear before the court on December 28, 2021.

Cervantez explained that “there has been a rise in complaints concerning mail theft in jurisdictions across the country. We want to work closely with local law enforcement to bring suspects to justice because it’s a crime that often flies under the radar but can have a significant impact on our local communities, especially around the holidays.”

In addition to the charges filed against Moutria, the Jackson County State’s Attorney’s Office will immediately be reviewing every mail or package theft case submitted by local law enforcement.

State’s Attorney Cervantez emphasized that “the charges filed are not evidence of guilt — a defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which this office has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.”
