EDMONDS, Wash. – Edmonds Police are looking for thieves they say are responsible for stealing up to 200 pieces of mail found dumped on Saturday morning. They are issuing a warning to residents to check their mailboxes daily. Police said they believe the crooks are looking for graduation letters filled with cash and gift cards.
“We filed a police report, but there’s not much they can do,” Kristin Adair, said she has been targeted before by mail thieves. “We’ve had packages stolen in our neighborhood. We’ve had Amazon Fresh deliveries stolen,” she said.
She had not heard about Edmonds Police latest warning, that thieves are targeting high school seniors.
Edmonds Police said it’s often a group of individuals committing the crime. There’s a driver, someone in the passenger seat to get the mail, and a person in the back to sort through the mail for money. They then often dump the opened evidence in random spots. Q13 Fox TV
