I-Team: Police Investigate More Mail Thefts

Eyewitness news did numerous reports on these thefts late last year.

arrests were made -- but now, police say, a new thief or thieves are at work..

"It’s very concerning," Cathy Krupsha says she thinks twice about putting her mail into this drop box at the Seybertsville Post Office in Sugarloaf Township.

"I don't use drop boxes that often even with a check, especially with a check. I pay those things online," Said Krupsha.

And checks are what these thieves are looking for.

"Mail was fished out. These checks were taken out of that mail. Checks were forged obviously names were changed and those funds were negotiated at other location." Noted Chief Josh Winters, Sugarloaf Township Police.

Chief Josh Winters says the brazen thieves usually do their dirty work in the middle of the night.

"In most cases, some kind of glue is used. These are devices out there that are not made for that obviously but they can be used to do that," the Chief noted.

Victims only learn about the crimes when bills they thought were paid were not.or after they check their

bank accounts and the checks were made out to a fake name.

"You're best off taking your mail right in and hand delivering it to a postal worker or the drop box right in the post office." Added Chief Winter.

Stealing mail is a federal offense.
