Local Mail & Package Thief Caught on Tape
A resident of 9th Street recorded a thief walking onto the homeowners' porch and searching through mail before selecting two items from the mailbox and grabbing a newly delivered package off the porch. Mail theft is a common problem in many District neighborhoods, but it's aggravating each and every time it happens to us (I think we all recall the hilarious incident in which a resident tricked an unwitting thief into stealing a package filled with dog poop). Have you had packages or mail stolen? What steps (if any) do you take to prevent it from happening?
