Belmont neighborhood targeted for mail theft
January 28, 2014, 05:00 AM

An apparent rash of mail theft has been reported in the Central Neighborhood of Belmont, according to police.

The specific areas are Terrance Drive, Hillman Avenue and Arbor Avenue, and police have been receiving calls from the Belmont post office for the past week, according to police.

Pieces of mail have been found discarded in the area and it appears whoever is stealing the mail is walking the area, taking the mail, keeping what they ant and discarding the rest, according to police.

Mail theft is often the first step toward identity theft, according to police.

Police are asking residents to keep a look out for suspicious people, especially in the Central Neighborhood. Anyone with information on the thefts is asked to call Belmont police at (650) 595-7400 or the crime tip line at (650) 598-3000.
