LOS ANGELES – Security video obtained exclusively by FOX 11 shows two criminals apparently using USPS master keys to gain access to a Westwood luxury apartment building’s mailboxes, and steal almost all of the tenants’ mail.
It happened around 7:40 a.m. at The Rochester Apartment Homes, where Sam Keeley has lived for the past five years.
“I was pissed off, it’s pretty upsetting to see people entering your home and taking your stuff so I was pretty angry,” Keeley said.
Keeley awoke Monday morning to find out an expensive smartphone was missing from his mailbox. When other residents noticed their boxes were empty as well, the building manager was alerted.
“Sir looked through the footage and found that a couple had come in the front door, used a master mail key to open both of these cabinets and just clear out everything in them,” Keeley said.
