PANORAMA CITY, Calif. (FOX 11) - A Panorama City neighbor said thieves are getting bolder, and someone stole all the mail from her mailman's truck on Tuesday.
Becky Rotramel said when she came outside her home around 2 p.m., her mailman's truck was empty with the exception of advertisements left behind. She had been eagerly waiting for her Mother's Day present, a rare plant from Hawaii her husband bought.
The postal inspection service told FOX 11, “Inspectors are well aware of the issue and are investigating."
It was unclear if the theft happened when the mail carrier was on his route. They would not comment since it's an open investigation.
However, a postal inspector on the scene said he saw dents and marks on the truck and believed it was broken into.
