The end of Canada Post’s door-to-door service has introduced a new problem in Surrey, B.C.: a rise in community mailbox break-ins.
Thieves have apparently figured out how to break into Canada Post’s supposedly high-security "superboxes," leaving residents’ mail vulnerable.
Surrey resident Julie Parker says her community mailbox has been broken into three times since autumn, with the latest break-in coming on Wednesday. The multi-compartment mailbox was still broken and taped up on Saturday.
