USPS collection boxes broken into in Parsippany, Mountain Lakes

PARSIPPANY-TROY HILLS, NJ (Morris County) – Parsippany police say that two mail collection boxes in Parsippany and one in Mountain Lakes were broken into last week.

The U.S. Postal Service mail collection boxes located at 1160 Parsippany Blvd and 1180 Route 46 were broken into between 4:00 p.m. on Jan. 22 and 7:00 a.m. on Jan. 23, police said.

The mail collection box on Midvale Avenue in Mountain Lakes was also forced open during the same time frame, police said.

The unknown suspect emptied the bins which would have contained outbound mail. If you used the collection boxes during the above mentioned time frame, you’re asked to verify that the person or business you sent mail to received it, police said.

Police say that if you sent any personal information out during that time frame, you’re asked to monitor your credit report and bank accounts for fraudulent activity.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is currently investigating these incidents.
