Video: Postal inspectors seize large amount of stolen mail in Albuquerque hotel

ALBUQUERQUE —Inspectors with the United States Postal service seized a large amount of stolen mail connected to a number of mailbox thefts in Albuquerque.

Since January, inspectors have been investigating a series of mail thefts around Albuquerque. Thieves have been hitting community mailboxes, mail trucks and mail carriers.

“In March, inspectors recovered numerous pieces of stolen mail from a hotel room in Albuquerque,” said Postal Inspector Stephanie Herman in a notice sent to victims targeted in some of the thefts.

Inspectors wouldn’t tell Action 7 News how the letters were recovered, but said that the seizure has helped investigators narrow in on suspects.
