Stolen mail, including envelopes from Manteca, were discovered at a Stockton home Tuesday morning by Stockton police after a month-long investigation of a mail theft ring, according to spokesman Officer Joe Silva.
Other mailed documents had come from a number of large community receptacles that had been opened with a crowbar allegedly by the two sisters living in the 1700 block of Bonaire Circle.
Officers located shredded documents in the women’s home as well as stolen credit cards, electronics and drugs along with a pistol and ammunition in the Stockton neighborhood. 
The thefts focused on identity thefts made possible with the use of the stolen mailed documents, police said.
Stockton officers said their investigation had led them to the stash where they found the back of a community mailbox, a gun and a trash can allegedly filled with shredded stolen documents.
Investigators were quoted as saying there are a lot more questions to be asked in the case where police expect to find additional stolen mail, having to contact each of the myriad of victims who have been involved as victims in the crime.
Among the illegal drugs that were discovered was a filled pharmacy order by an elderly woman who did not get her prescription for an ongoing illness. 
Both women were booked into San Joaquin County Jail in French Camp Tuesday afternoon.  Zandra Yezenia Fajardo, 38, is being held without bail charged with eight felonies including the theft of mail and being a felon in the use of a firearm. 
The younger sister, Margaret Anellay Fajardo, 37, was charged with one felony including the theft of mail. She is being held in county jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
