Police searching for culprits after mail thefts

Officers urging residents not to leave mail outside overnight

A series of mail thefts occurred between Sterling Greens Circle and Dolores Drive this weekend, prompting police to recommend safeguarding mailboxes.

Unknown culprits took mail from at least five homes in Pleasanton, along with mail from Redwood City homes, Pleasanton police stated. The Pleasanton thefts took place between 4 a.m. and 5:30 a.m. Saturday.

Most residents didn't know what items were taken. One resident told police she knew several mailers and her copy of the Pleasanton Weekly had been stolen, which she told police she'd been looking forward to reading.

A few scattered magazines and advertisements were left behind at the scene. Police continued to investigate and had not made any arrests in the cases as of Wednesday.

Police urged residents to safeguard their mailbox with a lock or other device and to not leave mail outside overnight.

Anyone with information on these cases is asked to contact the Pleasanton Police Department at 931-5100.
