(San Antonio, TX) -- Mail theft is a big problem in San Antonio. KSAT-TV reports there were almost 800 reports of mail theft in a recent, 26-month period, with losses at more than 265-thousand dollars. Most of those reports didn't specify what kind of object was stolen, but electronics and audio/visual items were stolen almost 30 times. Authorities say thieves often hit mailboxes at apartment complexes, where they break open the boxes and take mail.
