SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Registered voters in Los Angeles County should be receiving their ballots this week if they have not already, but some voters in the Crenshaw District might have to wait even longer after a number of ballots were found discarded.
It turned out that all of the ballots were addressed to residents of an apartment complex less than a mile away from where they were found.
“That’s scary,” Mars Quinonez, a resident of the complex, said. “But, honestly, our building constantly gets broken into.”
She also said mail theft was a common occurrence at the complex.
“So sometimes I’ll come in and all these are all open,” she said. “And then, like I said before, they’ve like actually broken into them.”
Cell phone video previously taken by Quinonez shows one such incident when an unknown person broke into the mail boxes, leaving them all open with letters exposed.
