Post Office Mailboxes Theft


Thursday August 28th, the Big Bear Sheriff received several reports of mail being stolen during non-business hours from mailboxes located outside the Post Offices throughout Big Bear Valley. The Sheriff Deputies have identified the suspects involved in these matters and are continuing with the investigation.

A large quantity of stolen mail was recovered Thursday, including checks for payment of bills, Netflix movies, and other materials containing personal identification information.

If anyone has experienced difficulty with payments not being processed or receiving delinquent notices on accounts where payments have been mailed, be aware that their mail may have been compromised. Big Bear Valley residents are encouraged to drop off their mail during business hours to ensure that it is picked up and processed in a timely manner.

The Big Bear Sheriff is making its efforts to notify victims of the stolen mail that was recovered. The United States Postal Service is assisting in the ongoing investigation. Further information on this matter will be released as it becomes available.

Related information may be reported to the Big Bear Sheriff’s Station at (909) 866-0100.
