INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — An Indianapolis family is looking for answers after mail to their faraway loved ones was stolen from their downtown home and it was all caught on camera.
A man opened the mailbox, took what was inside and walked off. What he didn’t know is he stole letters meant for someone special.
Chad Ahren lives in the Herron-Morton neighborhood with his two daughters, Avery and Lorelei.
His daughters made cards for their 98-year-old great-grandfather who lives in Illinois. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the girls have not been able to see him.
Those letters were among the mail taken by a man captured on doorbell video.
“If it were something that was irreplaceable, that would’ve been awful. But my daughters are excellent artists and they have a lot of love to give,” Chad said.
“I really miss him (her great-grandfather) and I hope to see him as soon as we can and I hope he’s not too bored and lonely,” said Avery.
Chad says his daughters have already made new letters to mail off.
No arrests have been made.
