Video: Mail carrier tackles, pins package thief to the ground on Milwaukee’s east side

MILWAUKEE — Signed, sealed, delivered… and robbed. A mail carrier tried to deliver two packages but gets robbed — but the thieves didn’t get away.

Those near Arlington and Warren say the robbers picked the wrong guy to mess with. And the robbers can now face federal charges due to what was inside those packages.

Milwaukee police confirm Thursday morning, November 17th, two men came up to the mail carrier and grabbed a package he was delivering.

Witnesses say the mailman took off after one of them, tackling the teenager in Kelsey Lamb’s backyard.”I just saw these two men going back and forth. One was a mailman and he was screaming 911 so I actually called 911,” said Lamb.

Sources tell FOX6, in addition to the robbery, there was another reason the robber wanted to get away. Inside the package postmarked from Las Vegas, were drugs.
