Lucky for us, that thief doesn’t sound like the sharpest pencil in the box either.
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?
