VIDEO: Penticton man shares footage of alleged attempted mail thief

The video shows a woman walking up his sidewalk, checking the mailbox at 1 a.m. on Wednesday

A Penticton resident is warning others to be diligent about checking their mail after his security camera footage caught a suspicious individual doing just that in the early hours of Wednesday.

Jeff Hunter took to Facebook, Nov. 13, to share security footage shot at about 1 a.m. this morning that shows a woman walking the footpath to his home and looking inside his mailbox. Fortunately, Hunter had already checked his mail on Tuesday, so the alleged attempted-thief left empty-handed.

“Just a friendly reminder to check your mail daily so those that creep in the night dont walk away with what’s yours,” wrote Hunter in his post.

The identity of the person in the video is not known at this time.
