The relay boxes, used by letter carriers for mail storage, have been a target of theft caught on camera repeatedly over the course of months. Victims calling for increased mail security say that’s not what they got.
Built to accommodate a second lock, each box still only has one, opened by a master key known as an arrow key.
“They actually moved the boxes much closer to where the people stealing the mail had parked their truck last time,” Fraioli said.
USPS told CBS New York the boxes were moved temporarily to accommodate a Department of Transportation construction project.
Locals question the postal service’s priorities.
