PLEASANT HILL (KPIX 5) — Postal imposters are a problem plaguing a lot of communities. Pleasant Hill is the latest city to get hit.
One woman has been spotted driving around in an old United States Postal Service truck without license plates, opening people’s mailboxes and stealing what’s inside.
“Lately it seems like it’s happening more, but yes, it happens every Christmas,” says UPS employee Lohengrin Clausell.
With more people getting their holiday shopping done online these days, more packages are delivered to doorsteps, creating more opportunities for thieves to steal gifts.
