Mail Theft in the Hollywood Hills
You learn the darndest things on line: the LAPD posts officer reports at lapdonline.org.
Officers patroling the Hollywood Hills area report, "We are still experiencing mail thefts in the Barham/Lake Hollywood area. Please have outside mailboxes that lock, and don’t leave outgoing mail for the postman to pick up."
Who the hell is stealing mail from these people? Some desperate drunk intent on bartering SAG checks for drinks at Residuals?
