USPS offered the following tips if you notice your mail may have been stolen:
· Report mail theft to the US Postal Inspection Service at https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov [postalinspectors.uspis.gov] . Postal Inspectors encourage making a local law enforcement report as well, but those reports aren’t always provided to Postal Inspectors. You can also call 877-876-2455; however, you can upload files directly into the online complaint.
· Stealing mail is a federal offense (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1708), punishable by up to five years in prison for each piece stolen and a possible fine.
· Anyone with information leading to the arrest and conviction of a mail thief is eligible for a reward of up to $5,000. Information should be reported to 877-876-2455. Choose the postal emergency option.
