Mail stolen several times from post offices in Henderson

April 20, 2019

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service’s law enforcement division says mail has been stolen from two post offices in Henderson in southern Nevada on multiple days in April.

Postal Inspector Liz Davis says the thefts of trays of mail apparently were conducted early in the morning on April 6, April 8 and April 15 and that authorities don’t know how much mail was taken but that it could be thousands of pieces.

Davis says the thefts happened after the mail was delivered from a central sorting plant and placed in plastic sorting areas in restricted outside areas before letter carriers arrived for their shifts at local post offices.

Investigators have a vehicle description but no suspects so far.
