After leaving placed some outgoing mail–a Netflix DVD and a pair of envelopes with personal checks— in her mail slot, A.G. of Silver Lake heard the lid of her mail slot clank on Monday morning after it was opened and closed. Her mail was gone but it was not a postal worker who took it. A.G., who lives west of Silver Lake Boulevard near Berkeley Street, explains what happened:
I heard my mail slot cover clank but never heard the mail truck. So, I looked out to the street from my upstairs window and saw a young man get into a black Dodge Charger that was being driven by someone else and take off. I didn’t have time to get the license plate number. But I have reported it to the USPS Inspector General for the area. I just thought this should get posted in some way, so people can be on the lookout b/c I doubt my mail was the only mail that was stolen.
A.G. also discovered that mail theft is investigated by the U.S. Postal Service – no the LAPD. “I went to file a report with the [Northeast] Police division on San Fernando Road and they refused to do anything. “
