Lucas emails this weekend:
I’ve read (and re-read) the article and comments from the November mailbox break ins. – https://www.mapleleaflife.com/2015/11/12/updated-reports-of-mail-theft-continue-in-maple-leaf/
I’m afraid to report that ours and several others locking mailboxes were pried open sometime between 11:30 p.m. and 8 a.m. this (Friday) morning. Ours was left hanging open with our junk mail left soaking wet. We live on Northeast 90th Street and 17th Avenue Northeast.
We’ve reported it to USPS and are filing a police report as well. It’s unfortunate that these events keep happening in our neighborhood. It makes me nostalgic for the time when we had mail slots in our house.
We’ll be placing our mail on hold and considering options for a mail service. The mailbox is, unfortunately, damaged to the point where it will no longer remain closed.
Earlier in the week Jesse (Victory Heights) mailed:
“Hi Maple Leaf Life, I caught a package thief on camera and am wondering if there is a way I can send pictures your way to warn others?”
On Nextdoor Northgate/Maple Leaf he added: “He’s wearing an old school emblem Mariner’s flat-billed cap and red and black buffalo checkered jacket and sunglasses. ”
