Who holds the key to this Silver Lake mail theft?

The residents of a Silver Lake condominium complex on Griffith Park Boulevard near Lyric Avenue recently discovered that several of their mail boxes had been unlocked. A check of security camera footage (pictured) revealed that a person used a master key to go through the boxes early Sunday morning. Resident Jennifer Bird said the complex was hit with mail theft last year and knows of another Sunset Boulevard building that experienced the same thing. Now, she wants to know if mail has been stolen from any other nearby condo or apartment buildings. Here are the details of the crime:

“It happened early Sunday morning, October 17, when a person (small male or female) in a black jacket and helmet spent about ten minutes using the master key to open our mailboxes and going thru the mail of most residents. We had a lot of this Summer 2009 and spent $10,000 to put in the latest, more theft proof mailboxes, which do us no good with the thieves having the KEY! We let the postal inspector know this last year but they were unable to change the locks on all the mailbox panels in the area.”
