TROUBLING INCIDENT: Mailbox From Jewish Home In Chestnut Ridge Stolen On Friday Night [VIDEO]

A mailbox belonging to a Jewish home in Chestnut Ridge was stolen on Friday night – and the entire incident was captured on video.

The homeowner tells YWN that this is not the first incident he has personally had, and has made police reports with the Ramapo Police Department.

As is seen in the video, multiple persons were involved in this incident. One male is seen with the mailbox in his hand, while a group of at least 5 others are standing on the road watching.

It should be noted that mailboxes are considered federal property, and federal law (Title 18, United States Code, Section 1705), making it a crime to vandalize them (or to injure, deface or destroy any mail deposited in them). Violators can be fined up to $250,000, or imprisoned for up to three years, for each act of vandalism.

Detectives from the Ramapo Police Department are actively investigating the incident.

YWN has spoken to other Orthodox Jewish residents who have also related various incidents – many of them blatantly Anti-Semitic. One resident tells YWN he was recently warned by a non-Jewish neighbor on his street to “move out of here” just days after moving into his new home.

For those unaware, Chestnut Ridge is a village in the town of Ramapo, Rockland County, NY, located north of the state of New Jersey, east of Monsey, south of Spring Valley, and west of Nanuet. Many Orthodox Jewish families have moved into the village in the past few years, as the Monsey community continues to expand.
