Authorities investigating reports of mail theft in San Fernando Valley

U.S. Postal Inspection Services is investigating two recent reports of alleged mail thefts from condominium complexes in Studio City and Sherman Oaks, officials confirmed Monday.

On Saturday, NBC4 aired surveillance footage of suspected thieves allegedly stealing mail from a Sherman Oaks condominium complex.

On Monday, the news outlet reported that a Studio City resident contacted the station after seeing the report. The resident believed that the woman in the surveillance video of the Sherman Oaks theft resembled a woman who was caught on surveillance video allegedly stealing mail from his condominium complex a month ago.

In both instances, the alleged thieves had keys to the row of mailboxes.

The alleged Studio City theft occurred on April 1 around 3:45 a.m. and the alleged Sherman Oaks theft occurred on May 8 around 2:30 a.m., according to time and date stamps on the surveillance footage.

In the Sherman Oaks case, a man and a woman tried several keys to the call box to enter the lobby of the complex and then used keys to open a row of mailboxes, dumping the mail into the woman’s handbag, the footage shows.

In the Studio City theft, the alleged thieves used a code to enter the building and then used keys to open up the mail boxes, the footage shows.

In each instance, the woman is accompanied by a man.

“The biggest help from the community we can get is take your mail out of the mailbox every day,” Inspection Services spokeswoman Stacia Crane said.

That way, there is nothing left for criminals to take, she said.

“These crimes are happening in the wee morning hours,” Crane said.

Crane encouraged residents to become vigilant about clearing their mailbox, like they should be about making sure valuables in vehicles are out of view from potential thieves.

The U.S. Postal Service has taken steps to retrofit collection boxes where outgoing mail is dropped off by and picked up by postal service workers to make them more tamper proof.
