  1. Oh hey. I was the “concerned citizen.” (Or at least I was one of them. They had me identify the suspect when they caught him.) The mail carrier wasn’t female, though, not sure why the story says that.

    • Good for you for getting involved! Glad they caught him:)
      The female carrier description came from LAPD…maybe they just checked the wrong box on the report?
