Video: Mailbox Theft Plagues Vallejo CA Residents

VALLEJO (CBS SF) — A recent rash of mailbox thefts has compromised more than 300 people’s deliveries in Vallejo and now residents are waiting in lines to pick up packages at the post office.

The U.S. Postal Service is investigating the thefts.

“It’s a shame,” said mailbox owner Larry Greg.

The post office inspector says there have been 23 reported burglaries in the Vallejo and American Canyon area since February 1st and likely more unreported.

Crooks are breaking open some boxes, picking the locks on others and possibly using a counterfeit master key. Once inside, they’ve got your mail, and all the information that comes with it.
