Head of postal police union weighs in as mail theft rises Tulsa, U.S.

Criminals have been breaking into the blue collection boxes outside of post offices in Tulsa and Owasso, forcing employees to tape the bins shut to protect people from thieves.

Now, the National President for the Postal Police Officers Union is weighing in.

Frank Albergo reached out to FOX23 Investigative Reporter Janna Clark after watching our FOX23 Investigations about the mail theft problem. In his email, Albergo said mail theft has exploded recently and that the postal service does little to attack the issue.

“The postal service downplays the mail theft problem. They don’t issue warnings, they’ll tape up a blue collection box, but they won’t explain why,” said Albergo. “They very rarely notify the community that there’s a mail theft problem. Usually the banks are the ones notifying the victims.”
