At about 2pm this afternoon at Nevada and Runnymede there was a theft from a free-standing mailbox (the mail had just been delivered) at a residence on the corner of Western, and then two men took packages from the back of the mail truck parked there. Fortunately a young woman passing saw this happen, and got the tag number and description of their vehicle. Police were called, as were the Post Office supervisors.
We were driving at that intersection right after it happened, and talked to the residents, who are friends of ours. Later we talked to the mail carrier, whom we know quite well, and he told us more details. He said that some residents don't want their mail through the mail slot in the door because their pets chew it.
