Mail thefts continue in Roseville, prompting authorities to provide tips to prevent loss of letters and packages.
Someone broke into a cluster of mailboxes in the 2700 block of Carradale Drive on Feb. 23 and removed mail, according to Roseville police. Then, on Thursday, a gold Hyundai sedan drove up next to a mailbox in the 1500 block of Pine Valley Circle.
The passenger reached out of the car’s window as if to take mail out of the box. However, a mail carrier happened to drive up at the same time and the car sped away.
Tips to stem mail thefts:
▪ Report thefts to police and U.S. Postal Service inspectors at (877) 876-2455.
▪ Send outgoing letters by dropping them in a streetside mailbox or handing them to postal carriers.
▪ Pick up mail promptly on delivery.
▪ Expecting checks or credit cards? Have a trusted neighbor promptly pick up mail.
