Video: Mailboxes stolen from California post office


Two mailboxes in front of an Alhambra post office were unhinged and stolen early Thursday morning, U.S. Postal Service officials said.

The boxes, located at Benito Avenue and Valley Boulevard, were immediately replaced. But the federal crime caused some concern among postal customers.

“I always like to put my mail here. Now, I don’t trust to put my mail here. Now, I have to go inside of the post office,” said Julie Ruiz, an Alhambra resident.

“The worst part of it is the fact that nobody saw anything. I think it would be a little bit obvious if somebody was just taking the time to take them out and put them in somebody’s truck,” Los Angeles resident Mireya Alonso said.
