BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Someone is stealing mail from the place one might least expect it, the post office.
Thieves broke into several post office boxes, as well as parcel boxes, at the Stockdale branch of the United States Postal Service. One business owner who did not want to be identified said the incident is disturbing, because he receives bank statements, credit card statements and other business documents by mail and is afraid any stolen information could lead to problems.
People who use a post office box said they do it mainly for security.
“I use a P.O. box because in my neighborhood, the kids who don’t steal the mail put ice cream and frogs and stuff like that in my mail box,” said teacher Shanon Fairres.
