RCMP and Canada Post make mail-theft arrest

A thirty-three year old Chilliwack man was arrested just one day after a string of community mail-box break-ins.

Chilliwack native Jeffery Michael Kizmann is in hot water, charged with mail theft and breach of probation after a Sept. 2 arrest.

The 33 year old was picked up in connection with a string of community mail-box break-ins that happened Sept. 1 in the 8400 block of Shrewsbury Drive. Four boxes were hit and a joint investigation by the RCMP and Canada Post pointed to Kizmann.

RCMP in the UFVRD continue to work closely with our partners in Canada Post and other police agencies throughout the Fraser Valley to investigate and arrest the people responsible for the theft of mail,” said RCMP Cpl. Mike Rail.

Police and Canada Post offer simple tips to prevent mail theft.
