Mail thefts spike during tax season


The red Toyota RAV4 suspect vehicle that authorities believe was used to commit mail theft in Roseville and Woodbury. A homeowner living on Dunlap Circle in Roseville sent this image recorded by her home surveillance camera to police. St. Paul Police pulled the same vehicle over in the Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood and arrested two St. Paul men early Friday, Feb. 7.

Local police departments are asking residents to keep a close eye on their mailboxes following an increase in mail theft in Roseville and other communities across the metro. With tax season under way, some thieves have been rifling through people’s mailboxes searching for documents containing personal information that can be used to commit identity theft.   
“We’ve noticed an uptick, which typically starts around the holidays, but really starts fast and furious in January when employers send out W2’s and 1099’s,” Roseville Police Lt. Lorne Rosand said.
