“I was shocked,” said Fred Stein, a condo owner and board member. “They were in and out very quickly. Clearing out the mailboxes and gone.”
Surveillance video captured thieves entering Stein’s West Loop condo and taking off with mail and packages. Residents said what was even more shocking was the fact that there was no forced entry into the building–instead, what appears to be the use of a U.S. Postal Service master key to open the front door.
“We had two thieves who entered the building who we suspect entered using the postal service access key,” Ziolo said. “We saw them on the video turn the key to enter the front door.”
Ziolo said the thieves went beyond the mailboxes in her building and into the garage area, where they stole an expensive baby carriage.
