A postal inspector says two locations, one at 404 S. Boulder Highway, and another at 1575 Horizon Ridge Parkway have reported someone is stealing plastic trays of mail, potentially holding between two and three thousand letter-sized pieces of mail from restricted areas.
“It’s quite unusual,” said Liz Davis, postal inspector with the Phoenix Division.
“It’s pretty bold to go into a restricted space, a back dock is typically in a gated area that is restricted to employees only,” added Davis.
Sources say the thefts occurred on Monday, April 15, April 8, and Saturday, April 6.
Multiple sources say the thefts involved multiple routes and multiple bins which could equal as many as 45,000 pieces of letter-sized mail.
“It’s an unfortunate thing, inspectors are actively looking into this matter,” said Davis.
