SEATTLE, Wash. — There’s a troubling crime on the rise in King County, and residents in one North Seattle neighborhood have had enough.
"It makes you really uncomfortable," said Heather Campbell, who lives in Seattle’s Pinehurst neighborhood. "It’s one of those things that you don’t know how to protect against."
The postal inspector says mail thefts are on the rise, especially in Pinehurst. Just last week several neighbors received a notice from the Seattle Police Department that their mail had been found inside a stolen car in another county. The mail was returned to the its owners by police. Neighbor Lisa Lotus says a check and her W2 form was stolen out of her mailbox.
