Mailbox bandits in Gulf Park Estates
A couple of mailbox bandits have been caught on surveillance cameras in the Gulf Park Estates neighborhood in Ocean Springs going through residents’ mail.
The victim posted this video to a Facebook page that highlights crime in the Jackson County community. It appears that first a male rolls by on his bicycle and he’s followed by a woman. The woman drops a bag on the ground then rides up to the mailbox, takes the mail, sits down and sifts through before putting some of it in her bag and some of it back in the mailbox.
The person who posted the video on Facebook says dropping the bag is the bandits tactic to see if your box has any goodies.
If you recognize these two or have any further information you are asked to call Crime Stoppers.
