Mailbox break-ins reported at multiple Central Virginia post offices

GLEN ALLEN, Va. — The United States Postal Inspection Service and police are investigating after someone pried open and stole mail from post office mailboxes in multiple locations around Central Virginia, according to police and the U.S. Postal Service.

“We received calls from several post offices that our blue boxes, located at the post offices, had been tampered with,” United States Postal Inspector Michael Romano said. “It appears that we’ve had some level of mail stolen from these blue collection boxes.”

Investigators put yellow police tape around several mailboxes outside the U.S. Post Office on Sadler Place, near Innsbrook, in Glen Allen.
