Please be aware of situations like this and be cognizant of mail and packages delivered to your residence. A step in preventing mail theft is to have your neighbors, ones that you trust, gather packages that are delivered while you are away from your residence.  The post office or delivery companies can have your mail/packages kept at the main office for you to pick up.

If you see any suspicious activity, please obtain as much information as possible about the suspect and the vehicle and contact the Burbank Police Department directly at 818-238-3000.
