Beware mail theft this holiday season

December 4th, 2012 · 13 Comments

Mail theft appears to be ramping up with the holiday season, Michelle reports over the weekend.

“On my block this morning, I recovered a large pile of dumped mail that appeared to be stolen,” she wrote Sunday afternoon.

A Seattle police officer came by to collect the mail from me and was going to specifically return a couple of the more personal letters/photos to some houses. In general, letters with handwritten envelopes were all torn open, along with what may have been new credit/debit cards from a bank envelope and Netflix envelopes (DVDs missing).

Michelle lives in the 500 block of Northeast 104th Street, and said the mail had addresses that included Northeast 104th, 102nd and 97th streets.
