ORLANDO, Fla. — A new report shows Postal Inspectors are making fewer mail theft arrests each year. That’s despite ongoing attacks on mail carriers and what’s been described as rampant mail theft and fraud.

Channel 9 investigative reporter Karla Ray has been breaking new details on this issue for eight months and found the arrests have gone down each year since 2018.

The Postal Service admits that mail theft has gone up, and it’s gotten so bad they’re warning you to go inside a post office to send sensitive mail, instead of leaving it in your box or a blue mailbox.

As criminals continue to target your mail with the goal of stealing your identity or money, mail carriers continue to be at risk of attacks.
