Stolen mail reported on N.E. 95th St.

Rachel emails to say “I just wanted to let you know that there was a woman going through mail on Northeast 95th Street (we are east of 15th Avenue  Northeast).”

She notes:

I renewed my Washington ID a couple of weeks ago and was waiting for it in the mail, until I received a phone call from a Lynnwood police officer Wednesday night stating that someone had been arrested in Lynnwood and presented my ID as their identification and that she confessed to going through mail in our neighborhood. Who knows what else she got out of our neighborhood’s mail?

We don’t get that many reports of mail theft, and in fact the Seattle Police crime report map doesn’t appear to show any reports this year.

It may be seasonal, though. Our last reports of stolen mail or packages, here and here, appeared to have some connection to the upcoming holidays.
