Mail Thieves Target Postal Boxes in Wethersfield

Mail was stolen from United States postal boxes in Wethersfield and this is at least the fourth Connecticut town where similar thefts have happened. 

Police said they were called to the Wethersfield Post Office at 67 Beaver Road around 9:30 a.m. Thursday after the blue mailboxes on the side of the street were broken into and a large amount of mail was taken. 

The last time mail had been collected was around 5 p.m. on Wednesday and police are asking anyone who put mail into the two street side collection boxes between 5 p.m. on May 15 and before 9 a.m. Thursday to call the United States Postal Inspection Service. 

Police are also urging anyone who used the mailboxes during that time frame to contact whoever you were sending mail to and notify them of the theft. 

Police said anyone affected to reference WPD Case #1900007042/US Postal Inspection Service Case #2779914-MT. 

Police in several towns are investigating the theft of mail from postal boxes in their towns as well, including Plainville, Newington and Newtown.
