WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Two Kansas men have pleaded guilty to federal charges related to their scheme to pilfer items from Wichita mailboxes.

Thirty-eight-year-old Shalan Hiatt of Wichita pleaded guilty Monday to one count each of mail theft and possession of a counterfeit mailbox master key. Thirty-three-year-old Jason Farner of Leavenworth pleaded guilty to two counts of mail theft.

Authorities say Hiatt and Farner admitted they were members of a group of people in Wichita who used counterfeited mailbox keys to steal mail containing checks and forms of identification.

Sentencing for both men is scheduled for Oct. 19.
