Video: Mail thief suspect wanted after being caught in the act

SOUTHWEST CENTER CITY — Nobody can blame the Postal Service for this, and watching the video could convince many people without locks on their mailboxes to get one.

Philadelphia police released surveillance video of a mail theft suspect getting off a bicycle in the 1000 block of S. Dorrance Street in Southwest Center City.

It happened on Thursday, Sept. 19, at about 4:15pm.

They report,

“The suspect removes several pieces of mail and packages from the victim’s mailbox; then leaves the area in an unknown direction.”

WANTED, from Philadelphia Police Department

Does he look familiar?

Police ask that if you recognize or see the suspect, do not approach him. Instead, call the South Detective Division at 215-686-3013 or 215-686-3014, or 911, or their tip line immediately.
