Updated:BREMERTON, Wash. —
Bremerton investigators are working on a case involving piles of stolen mail found in a wooded area.
Sunday afternoon, Bremerton police were called to a secluded wooded area where more than 500 pieces of suspected stolen mail was found.
Investigators are sorting through all of the mail and trying to identify victims.
Investigators estimated there may be nearly 100 victims who may not even realize they have had mail stolen.
The mail is from multiple addresses in Mason, Kitsap and Pierce counties, as well as the Gig Harbor area.
Among the stacks of mail are checks, gift cards, medical information, financial information, bills, photographs, packages and holiday cards.
Investigators will be processing the recovered items in hopes of identifying those responsible.
Investigators will be working with the U.S. Postal Service and attempt to notify the numerous victims in the case.
Bremerton police cautioned people to watch their mail carefully and to use the post office for outgoing mail rather than placing outgoing mail in rural mail boxes.
