Video: Growing concern Fresno mail delivery may no longer be safe

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) — There’s growing concern nationwide that mail delivery may no longer be safe. Mail delivery shouldn’t be stressful. But for one Fresno woman, it is.

Susan Newman said, “A little black car pulled up got out of the passenger side walked up took the package and went away.

“These two, Sesar Garcia and Vanessa Tucker of Los Banos are accused of doing just that. But in Los Banos, police recovered mail belonging to at least seven different victims in early July. The United States Postal Service says mail thieves use that same method all over California.

“Now it’s all sent to my husband’s office,” said Newman. “We won’t leave it anymore and it’s an inconvenience for us.”

A community mailbox at a north Fresno apartment complex was opened with a crow bar and packages were stolen this week. It’s an increasing concern people are reporting to the United States Postal Service, not just in Fresno, but all over the country.

    Real-time mail delivery notification would help eliminate the chance of mail being stolen. Recipients would be able to go to their clusterbox at the time of delivery reducing the chance of theft.
