Video: Mailboxes look like bank boxes to thieves during graduation season

EDMONDS, Wash. – Edmonds Police are looking for thieves they say are responsible for stealing up to 200 pieces of mail found dumped on Saturday morning. They are issuing a warning to residents to check their mailboxes daily. Police said they believe the crooks are looking for graduation letters filled with cash and gift cards.

“We filed a police report, but there’s not much they can do,” Kristin Adair, said she has been targeted before by mail thieves. “We’ve had packages stolen in our neighborhood. We’ve had Amazon Fresh deliveries stolen,” she said.

She had not heard about Edmonds Police latest warning, that thieves are targeting high school seniors.

    If these guys knew that thieves are straight up stealing lockboxes and cracking them open at their leisure…. My customers on my route think I’m blowing smoke up their butt when I alert them of this kinda crap. No, no I’m sadly not. I’ve been working at the post office for over 4 years now and have just about see everything….except a smart Postmaster, I have yet to see one of those.
