ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – It’s a crime that seems to be happening more and more. Thieves are breaking into mailboxes and swiping people’s mail.

According to a criminal complaint, police caught on to Lara after someone saw him and two others stealing mail in Albuquerque.

Investigators say Lara admitted to stealing mail from a handful of community mailboxes, saying he was able to make the key using a template he found on the internet.
