Thieves ran off with mailbox that was bolted to the sidewalk

HONOLULU (KHON2) – Thieves are taking extra steps in stealing your mail. They’re taking blue collection boxes that are bolted down to the sidewalk.

This happened in Kailua over the weekend. So if you dropped mail off in that mailbox at that time, officials say you should take precautions against identity theft.

“Just about to put it in the mailbox and I go honey, it’s not there,” said resident Sue White.

She and others are in disbelief after finding out that the blue collection mailbox on Maunawili Road was stolen.

“Pretty hard to believe that someone is really that desperate, that they would take your entire mailbox in the hopes, I guess, for identity theft,” White said.
