WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Mail theft on Beach Drive

Reader report from W:

Just want to report mail theft at 4866 Beach Dr SW – doors completely ripped off and mail gone :/ I’m reporting it to USPS.

If this happens to you – you can file reports online with the US Postal Inspection Service.

    Is this a bank of mail boxes by sidewalk or apartment complex mail boxes?   Sorry this happened.

    Was that today’s mail? Any of your neighbors get hit?

    Sorry to hear this. I noticed that there was a thief taking packages and prowling cars on the 24th just a few days before your mailbox incident. Maybe related? WSB story link https://westseattleblog.com/2023/12/west-seattle-crime-watch-suspect-questioned-after-business-burglary-package-thief/

    The thieves are getting very brazen holding up mailmen for their mailbags and stealing the mail trucks

    good luck reporting this vandalism to the Post Office “Inspection Service” !  Sounds like our “cluster'” mail box that was similarly broken in to last March.  The box still has not been replaced.  All my neighbors who got their mail from this multi box (16) has been making a trip to the Westwood Post Office to get our mail…. and waiting at least 15 minutes in line every time…for NINE MONTHS now!!  The cluster mail box was installed by the Post Office to make their deliveries easier, thanks a lot…It has been reported over, and over, and over.  The moral of the story is to never take your mail house delivery for granted….

Sorry, comment time is over.
