Security personnel at the apartment building discovered the theft upon reviewing surveillance camera footage taken at the location, authorities said.

The investigation revealed that the unidentified female burglar entered the lobby and gained access to the mailroom through an unsecured entry.

Once inside, law enforcement sources said, she grabbed 15 mail items that were left unattended, then fled the building on foot in an unknown direction.
