MPD releases updated description of five suspects wanted for breaking into USPS vehicle, stealing packages
Updated: 9 p.m. on December 7 2019
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A neighbor who lives near the most recent theft near 15th and Lloyd said she didn't get any mail on Friday.
"I was pretty irritated and pretty shocked," Tonya Manning said. "The fact that they did it in broad daylight just shows that they didn't have any care for anyone's mail."
Milwaukee Police say the suspects are believed to be involved in several similar thefts where they break into a mail truck while the carrier is delivering on foot.
Police released descriptions of the five suspects on Saturday.
"I'm just hoping they catch these guys and put them away and people get their replacement things that were taken," Manning said. "I hope so, I really hope so."
Anyone with information is asked to contact Milwaukee Police or Crimestoppers at 414-224-TIPS.
