The charges come after an incident in July 2022 when Miller and Kobe Powell were seen by officers opening the postal collection box in front of the Westside Post Office.

Police said that after attempting to make contact with the two suspects, they fled in a vehicle that eventually crashed into a home. After Miller was arrested, he was found with a Glock firearm in his possession.
