ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Homemade keys used by the U.S. Postal Service to break in to cluster mailboxes were found in the car of the man shot by Bernalillo County Sheriff’s deputies in Albuquerque.

David Hickey was wounded Tuesday while deputies were investigating a possible theft at a laundromat.

When deputies arrived, one of the men fled. Authorities say the 30-year-old Hickey got into the driver’s seat of the car and struggled with officers.

Sheriff’s officials say two deputies were dragged when a passenger in the vehicle put the car in reverse and that’s when Hickey was shot.

Deputies also found stolen credit cards, checks, passports, driver’s licenses and tax documents from more than 50 victims inside the vehicle.

They’re working with the U.S. Postal Inspector to notify the victims of the mail fraud.
