Oakland NJ, Borough of Oakland Police Department reports that between June 12th at 5pm and 730am June 13 the US Post Office collection boxes in front of the Oakland Post Office, 332 Ramapo Valley Road were broken into and all of the contents inside were stolen. The US Postal Inspector & Oakland Police Department are working together to investigate the thefts. If you placed any mail into any Oakland collection boxes immediately prior to these thefts and the contents were payments made by check, we advise you to cancel the checks and report this theft to the US Postal Inspection Service with any documentation supporting the incident. If the checks were already cashed, follow up with the individual or company the check was written to in order to be sure they actually received the payment and not the offender(s) involved in the thefts. If any personal information (date of birth, social security number, driver’s license number, etc.) was included, we encourage residents to respond to their local police department to file an identity theft report and to monitor all accounts and credit bureaus. We want to remind everyone the Oakland post Office does have drop boxes in their building which we recommend you use in the future.
