Postal Service Warning for Palm Beach County Residents as Man is Accused of Stealing Mail

Stealing mail almost seems like a silly and trivial thing but as of recently, a man has been seen digging into mailboxes in Palm Beach County.

According to WPTV, the man was seen using a specific tool to break into mailboxes on early mornings at the following locations:

  • Oct. 1: 1550 N. Federal Highway, Boynton Beach
  • Oct. 1: 125 Hypoluxo Road, Lantana
  • Oct. 3: 5033 50th Way, West Palm Beach

This situation prompted the U.S. Postal Inspection Service to warn residents about a thief who is breaking into Palm Beach County mailboxes and stealing private mail.

As of right now, investigators believe there is only one man behind the mailbox crimes. The suspect is said to be driving a gray, late model Hyundai Sonata with tinted windows.

The suspect is yet to be caught and the agency believes he will most likely be breaking into more mailboxes soon.

As a precaution, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service advises citizens to stay on top of bank and credit card accounts in lieu of suspicious activity.
