Postal inspectors say they’ve ID’d trio of postal thieves

The Seattle Division of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service says it now knows who the two men and one woman are it claims have been making a practice since June of breaking into post office boxes and stealing mail from post offices in Auburn and Milton.

“We have identified the suspects through tips and investigation techniques,” Postal Inspector John Wiegand said Friday. “At this time, no suspects have been charged in relation to the break-ins in Auburn and Milton. One suspect is in custody on an unrelated matter.”

According to the postal inspector, on the evening of July 23 the suspects again broke into multiple P.O. Boxes at the Auburn Main Post Office and stole mail. On that occasion, one of the men saw his face on a reward poster and ripped it from a wall.

To advance the ongoing investigation, the Postal Inspection Service continues to welcome the public’s assistance in gathering information leading to the arrest and conviction of the trio who images were captured by video surveillance. It has offered a reward up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

Anyone with information about these incidents or the suspects should call 206-748-5433, or the Inspection Service 24-hour line at 877-876-2455.
