Per the reader:
As one walks up Avenue B, you can see several buildings had this happen. A kid's scooter was stolen from the lobby of our building, and clearly people are getting desperate to do this kind of break in as it takes some effort. We're going to file a police report but just thought your readers might chime in if they have similar experiences or should be made aware.The locksmith had to come and change all the locks... and the USPS has to replace the lockbox.
It is annoying more than anything. I think people are just really desperate.
