Help identify mail thieves in surrey

Friend of my family had there mail stolen and hes got the video from it. You can see pretty clearly, if you have any information please email it to the person who made the video or to the rcmp! Until they are caught they will be doing this all over Surrey so be on the lookout. And this was around the Surrey Kwantlen

Thanks


edit:
Turns out there was 2 cameras

They probably use the mail to apply for credit cards. Then they bust open the mail boxes again when they are delivered.

Have fun if you live in a complex with that type of mail box, you can use hammer alone and pry them open, we had one that was damaged on our job site and Canada post wouldn't take it back so we locked it up and tried to open it, if you had a full sized crowbar and a hammer your in In 10 seconds

One thing I learnt playing around with surveillance cameras.. the only way you get good pictures that is recognizable is put the camera right up front and close to the subject. I know it will have to go through strata etc.. but add a camera right at the mailbox is a good move for the future. (just like at banks, you guys do know those height ruler things are not for your own benefit right?). From that angle you can't tell really that much.

So there are at least 3 people in the gang, driving a Ford Mustang coupe with 4 round headlights with fogs and chromed wheels... ala Surrey special.

not sure, these boxes are issued by Canada post, and are to my understanding the only ones they issue for complexes like townhouses etc. where there is no indoor common room

we've built 6 projects in the last 3 years and everytime we've been issued these same boxes. Hell, if you really wanted it bad enough you could probably rip the whole box out of the wall, there's only 4 security screws that hold them in unless they add additional moulding etc. around the bottom edges [which im not sure is even allowed by canada post]

only way id say is have signs for camera monitoring, cameras, motion sensing lights, etc.

A drill works too. Just drill the lock and you can open it no problems.

Have the strata add a locked gate around the mailboxes.

Or pick up your mail daily before the thieves get to it.

1.Don't use your mailbox but a PO box?
2.Live in a house that is not in a new development? (They hit these boxes because of the reward ratio).

I guess you can catch the entrance to make it harder.. (it looks like they hit around 5-6 in the morning?)

Even if you catch them, there will be a new crew doing their territory. To me it look just like those groups that drop South Americans at neighbourhoods that will have garbage pick up the next day, to go through their recycling.

How exactly can they obtain a credit card from your mail? Dont they need a lot of personal info and security questions to hack into your finances.

let me give u an extreme scenario, my complexes' mailbox got broken into, TWICE... first time nth much happened, but the 2nd time, the fking thieves stole a lot from me, not a lot of mail, but a lot of money. here's how it all went down.

one day i went to get my drivers license replaced, the very next week the mailbox got broken into. i guess coincidentally my drivers license was in the mail box too. what did they do with my drivers license? went to my bank, request a new debit card, and took money. according to the notes left on my profile, the teller told me the thief walked in with my id, impersonated me saying i lost my wallet, requested a replacement debit card, and also changed my pin on the spot "just to be safe" cus of the lost debit card. the thief proceeded to withdraw $15K cash advance on my visa via 3-4 visits during a period of 1 week.

i didnt know all this was happening until a week later when i tried my dabit card at an atm. then they talked to me about what happened.
