Harris County Precinct 5 looking for “Midnight Mailbox Bandit” captured by the Memorial-Area neighborhood camera

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – The Harris County Precinct 5 Police Department says they are looking for a suspect named “Midnight Mailbox Bandit” in west Houston.

A doorbell camera caught the suspect searching a mailbox in the middle of the night. At one point, the suspect looks straight into the camera lens, but keeps pulling out letters.

“It really upsets me to think of someone going door to door going through your mail. said neighbor Kathryn Donelson. “What else is he interested in? It’s very disturbing.”

Investigators say it happened in the 13100 block of Kimberley Lane near Wilcrest and I-10.

It’s a community described by neighbors as very safe and quiet, but recent video has them concerned.

“We feel pretty safe here so I’m a little disappointed that it happened,” said Joni Holder.

In the video, you can see the suspect holding a mail and then he appears to be hiding it from the camera’s field of view.

Turning, he adjusts his hoodie like he’s hiding the mail under the sweatshirt.

And as he walks away, he’s carrying an open backpack full of letters and packages that investigators say likely came from a trail of other victims.

“It is extremely disturbing to see this video. We have to find him,” Donelson said.

Investigators need the public’s help to identify the man, who can be seen wearing a very recognizable sweatshirt.

If you know who he is or can help identify him, call Constable Ted Heap’s office at 832-927-6700, email Detective James Dancer (james.dancer@cn5.hctx .net) or report it through the Online Crime Tips webpage.
