Video: Philadelphia warning about thieves targeting public mailboxes

MAYFAIR (WPVI) — 10/19/17 – Police arrested five people for stealing right out of mailboxes in a Philadelphia neighborhood.

The crime was caught on surveillance video exclusively obtained by Action News.

It happened along the 7100 block of Frankford Avenue in Mayfair on Tuesday.

At first, they stroll by looking like utility workers in reflective vests. They return, and one approaches the mailbox.

He drops a line inside and begins pulling, and in seconds pulls out mail. He quickly hands it off and the crew then just drifts away. ABC News Philly
