Mailbox Thefts
Benjamin Wagner, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of California, discusses the federal crackdown on the surge of thefts from mailboxes across the Central Valley, during a news conference in Sacramento, Calif., Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014. Working with postal investigators and local law enforcement, at least 27 people have been charged with crimes related to the break-in of mailboxes in post offices lobbies, neighborhood mailboxes, postal trucks and the counterfeiting of postal keys in search of checks, credit cards, personal identifying information and prescription drugs deviled by mail.
