Atwater police are seeking the public’s help to identify a mail thief who pried open the mailboxes at Olzack Healthcare Consulting and Providence Financial & Insurance Services last week.
Surveillance footage shows a dark-colored car pull up to a stop sign in the 2000 block of Peace Court about 9 p.m. on April 12. The driver gets of of his car and walks up to the Olzack and Providence community mailbox. He uses a tool to pry open the mailbox and takes the mail inside. He then runs back to the car and drives away, police said in a news release.
The video footage shows a passenger sitting in the front seat of the car as well.
The suspect appears to be light skinned with a beard wearing a baseball cap, an Adidas T-shirt, dark pants and shoes.
The license plate number of the car cannot be seen in the video. The car appears to be a small or medium size sedan, possibly a Honda, Volkswagen or Chevrolet, police said.
