Fleitcha Johnson and Myisha Johnson, 36, were arrested on suspicion of possession of burglary tools, mail theft, felony vandalism and on outstanding warrants, police said.

Officers responded at 1:21 a.m. Tuesday to a report of a suspicious person at the Murphy Ranch apartments at 310 East Dunne Ave.

Police said all of the stolen mail was returned.
