PLEASANT HILL (CBS SF) — An alleged porch pirate, who strolled through a Pleasant Hill neighborhood early Thursday dressed as a mailman, stole mail and packages from local homes, according to authorities and residents.
The suspect’s image has been captured on several residential surveillance cameras and the alleged thief was the focus of an investigation by postal inspectors and the Pleasant Hill police department on Saturday.
He wears clothing similar to U.S. Postal Service employees and even carries a mailbag.
Shereen Motarjemi thought it was odd to see a mailman walking through the neighborhood at 6:37 a.m.
“Oh my, you’re out rather early this morning,” she said to the man. But her dog was a little more suspicious.
After speaking to the man, he dropped a letter in her mailbox, but her dog kept barking at him.
