Federal investigators are adding another recent round of thefts to the rising number of unsolved cases at Oahu post offices.
P.O. box customer Tracei Medeiros, who lives in Maile, recently discovered the Nanakuli P.O. box she shares with her sister was opened. Important mail was stolen.
“I open the P.O. box and the thing just opened like that, and all our mail was gone. They stole my sister’s credit card that came in the mail. They went over there (to) FastStop, try to withdraw $430 from her card,” Medeiros said. “I mean really, what do you get out of it? You went try to use the credit card, you couldn’t. So what are you really getting out of taking people’s mail?”
Medeiros is one of several victims at the Nanakuli Post Office.
