Last week, reports from KTLA and CBS highlighted a recent surge of mailbox thefts that not only make your valuable items vulnerable, but may put your identity in jeopardy, too. KTLA’s story
details an attempted theft of two packages in broad daylight, right from would-be victim’s front steps. When the house’s owners caught the thief walking off with his packages, the owner began recording the thief with his cellphone camera and warned her that he’d call the police. The thief dropped the packages and left the scene. Not long after, KTLA updated their story
after police found and arrested the attempted thief in a Rosemead motel.
CBS had their own mail theft stories to share
, chronicling a recent spate of mailbox thefts that have been occurring across the Los Angeles area. According to reports, bystanders were able to capture video of two men systematically making their way down a residential street, one driving a slow moving vehicle while the other jogs alongside, gathering mail from mailboxes and routinely dumping them through the car’s passenger window. The thieving duo even timed their strike to follow soon after the post office’s delivery. The CBS report states that, “Mail thefts are apparently widespread in Southern California. Other communities including Riverside, West Hollywood and Corona have reported similar crimes.”
While mail theft is on the rise around Southern California, there’s still one sure-fire way to guarantee your mail arrives safely: private mailbox rentals. In the day and age of weekly online shopping deliveries and rampant identity theft, there’s no better way to safeguard your property and identity that to rent a secure, private mailbox. The advantages of a private mailbox are straightforward: they’re dependable, discreet, safe, and offer renters flexibility.
