SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, FLA. (WSVN) – A Southwest Miami-Dade woman is speaking out after, she said, she found dozens of pieces of mail in a box dumped in her garbage can.
Razia Velez called 7News after, she said, she found the box.
“This is really important stuff, you know,” she said. “This is people’s belongings, their information, their lives. This is a violation of all of us.”
Surveillance video captured a man sitting in a driveway, at around 4 a.m. on Monday. The alleged thief was seen sitting around for about an hour.
“The person gets out of the car, it’s a man and he takes this box, and he dumps it in my garbage can,” said Velez. “What seems to be a whole neighborhood of stolen mail. I mean, they went as far as ripping a mailbox apart.”
Inside the box, Velez said, were stolen letters, including an empty one from the Internal Revenue Service, as well as the front of a mailbox.
