MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Officials have recovered a mail truck in Southaven that was stolen from a mail carrier on route in South Memphis.
Around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, police responded to the scene at Florida Street and McKellar Avenue where mail truck was stolen from a United States Postal Service mail carrier.
Police said while the mail carrier was out of the truck delivering mail, a woman rode up on a bicycle, got in the truck and drove off southbound on Florida Street.
“It was exciting. You know, you ain’t used to nothing like that,” resident Laurence Mayes said. He said the woman took off before the mail carrier could act.
