According to Medford Police, the mailman dropping off mail noticed several doors had been open at Progress Estates apartments. Police suspect someone used a screwdriver to break the locks.
“Initially, I was worried about anything that could be in the mail like identity stuff that identity thieves could’ve been looking for. But I think mostly they were looking for checks and stuff like that,” said resident Chris Casav.
Police say tampering with mailboxes or mail is a federal offense. Residents say there was no surveillance cameras or witnesses who may have seen someone opening them.
