More reports of stolen mail – are thieves really following the delivery truck?

December 21st, 2011 by Mike

Karen emails this afternoon:

My neighbor and I just found two boxes that were pilfered on the sidewalk (we live at 12th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 88th Street)…one of them meant to be delivered to a 65th and 16th address, not sure about the other one.

Addresses still intact on one box and a tracking number present for the other package… neighbor has called the police and they are sending a patrol car over to get the information.

She’s the same Karen who reported packages stolen from her porch in our last post on this subject.

In addition, on that same post Susan commented:

There have been two daytime break ins over the past two weeks in Meadowbrook (near Northeast 98th Street between 35th Avenue Northeast and Ravenna Avenue Northeast) and one attempted break in. Several packages have been stolen off of front porches. It has been reported in the news that people follow the UPS trucks around.
