A rash of break-ins has the United States Postal Service inspector on high alert.
The post office said thieves are smashing their way into mail trucks and stealing packages and other mail.
In one incident, surveillance video captures a man walking in front of homes next to the Santa Teresa Golf Course in San Jose. Moments later, neighbors said the man smashed the front window of the postal truck.
“I can see him jump in and take boxes and taking all the mail,” said a resident who did not want to be identified.
The homeowner said her cameras caught the suspect in the act and has turned over the surveillance footage to the postal inspector.
