If you see a suspicious vehicle parked next to a locked mailbox or a group of locked mailboxes, please call 911. The Sammamish Police Department says there have been a large number of mailbox break-ins in recent days.

The thieves are using a flat-blade screwdriver or pry bar to open up the locked mailboxes.

Again, if you see someone other than a post office worker parked next to the mailboxes, call 911.
