Burnaby RCMP are warning the public to be vigilant after recent mail thefts at apartment building mailboxes.

The thefts occurred at two different buildings in North Burnaby where the mailboxes serving the complexes were forced open and all the mail was stolen.

Any multi-family building with a central mailbox can be similarly targeted, and create a risk of identity theft and fraudulent use of victims' personal information.

Residents of such complexes need to be vigilant when entering or exiting their homes and be aware of strangers loitering in our around lobby areas.

Property managers or Block Watch coordinators should be informed of any suspicious people trying to get in the building and anyone who sees suspicious or unusual activity is asked to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-294-7922.
