Why go ‘fishing’ when you can reach straight into the fish tank?

That’s what a pair of suspects have done amid the Glendale mail fishing spree as they are allegedly in possession of a stolen U.S. Postal Service mailbox key, authorities said.

On Aug. 20 at approximately 4:05 a.m., the two suspects attempted to gain entry into a U.S. Postal mailbox at 69-36 Myrtle Ave., in front of the Glendale Post Office using the stolen key, according to a flyer released by the 104th Precinct on Twitter.

The suspects were not able to gain entry to the mailbox and no mail was stolen, police said.

Sources familiar with the investigation added that there is no indication of how the suspects obtained the key, and the investigation is ongoing.

The 104th Precinct recently sent out an alert to the community that said there have been 38 reports of mail theft so far this year. The precinct continues to release tips online so that residents can protect themselves from becoming victims of mail crimes.

Anyone with information regarding the above suspects is urged to call the 104th Precinct Detective Squad at 718-386-2723 or Detective Borough Queens North at 718-520-9200.
