YONKERS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — The mayor of Yonkers will be calling on the U.S. Postal Service to provide more security after police say mail was stolen from postal mailboxes around the city.
Police said 10 mailboxes were burglarized around 2 a.m. Tuesday. Police said the thieves targeted bins on Main Street, Riverdale Avenue, South Broadway and Valentine Lane and stole whatever was inside.
Police are also warning anyone who may have used one of those mailboxes in the last few days to make sure their letter or package made it to its final destination. They are also telling people to alert their financial institutions that their account may have been compromised.
It’s the latest in a string of more than 60 mail theft incidents since January.
