ACTON, Calif. (KABC) — Thieves stole two mail trucks and led deputies on a chase after burglarizing a U.S. Postal Service facility in Acton early Monday, just two weeks before Christmas.
The brazen post office burglary happened at about 3:30 a.m. in the 3300 block of Smith Avenue, according to officials from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.
Five sets of key rings with master keys to the rural community’s mail boxes were stolen during the burglary.
Two post office trucks full of mail were also taken and one led Palmdale sheriff’s deputies on a brief chase before the vehicle crashed near Shannondale Road and Sierra Highway, according to officials.
