Folks in the Jamaica Plain group on Facebook are reporting incidents of their mail being grabbed out of mailboxes in the neighborhood and ripped open.
Emily Marsh reports:
Our letter carrier (I live near the brewery) found the torn-up remnants of a package I had mailed yesterday, on the corner of Amory and Boylston. I had put it in the blue box on that corner the day before. Seems like someone is reaching into the mailbox with some kind of device (!!) and pulling out packages. I'm pretty sure this is the second time this has happened because I mailed something else there a couple weeks ago and it never arrived.
Another JP resident, who lives near Franklin Park, reports something similar happened with checks she'd put in a mailbox there.
