Police made a startling discovery in Forest Hills early this morning when they caught a group of men in the process of stealing a large mailbox.
Three men were seen by the 112th Precinct’s Midnight Crime Team in the act of stuffing an entire mailbox into a Honda Odyssey just after 3 a.m today, police say. The thieves were near 67th Road and Yellowstone Boulevard, where the mailbox was taken from.
Two of the men fled once they saw the officers, but police managed to catch and arrest a 30-year-old. The identity of the arrested has not been released yet, as charges are pending.
Anyone with information on the incident, including the two males who fled, is asked to call 1-800-577-TIPS.
