Daniel emails this morning:

Late last night or early this morning (April 8), the residents of the Northgate Villa Condominium (Eighth Avenue Northeast and Northeast 105th Street) had their mailboxes forcibly pried open and their mail stolen. This is the second occurrence in less than a month.

The US Postal Service and the Seattle Police have both acknowledged that there has been a significant increase in residential mail theft in the Northgate and Maple Leaf neighborhoods. Residents are urged to pick up their mail daily and not to leave it out overnight.

We do from time to time get reports of mail theft. You can see a site search here.

The map at right is mail theft reports to Seattle Police in the neighborhood so far this year.
