Caught on Camera: Mailbox theft in Yonkers

Posted: Updated:

A woman targeting a Yonkers family's mailbox was caught on surveillance camera.

Police say video captures a woman taking the family's mail from their home on Buckingham Road last Friday at around 5:30 p.m.

She's then seen sneaking past their gate and poking around their backyard.

No one was home at the time.

The homeowners, who want to remain anonymous, are now looking for some answers. "She can't get away with it. I mean, if somebody sees something, if they know who this girl is, they should call the first precinct and report it."

Officials believe the suspect is the same woman who was recently caught shoplifting at the IGA supermarket.

Anyone with any information is asked to call Yonkers police at (914) 377-7477.
