LETTER: Burien resident upset about increase in mail theft 3Hi,

I’m unsure if this is the right place to contact, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to send this info…

We live on SW 146th Street and 8th Ave SW, right by the fire station. In the last month we have had credit cards stolen from our mailbox and used at the Fred Meyer on 1s Ave. We thought this was an isolated crime. In the last week we have had our mail stolen, tampered with or found in neighboring mailboxes nearly every single day. We have made police reports, contacted USPS, and our personal mail man on our route noticed it had gotten bad enough to come knock on our door this week.

I’m unsure if our entire neighborhood is experiencing this, but according to the mail man, he believes so. I’m hoping the blog can post something about this to warn neighbors in the crime section. It would be one thing if it happened once, but its almost daily and I’m unsure we are targeted or if its neighborhood-wide.

Thanks for your time!
