THE BRONX - Mail trouble may be over for tenants living in one Mount Hope building.

Residents of 1786 Topping Ave. called News 12 The Bronx last week about their mailboxes, which had undergone repairs, but didn’t receive locks.

The U.S. Postal Service refused to drop off mail until locks were installed on all boxes, and now says it expects delivery to resume today.

In a statement, the USPS said, "After follow up with building management to inspect the mail receptacle, we now believe this property is moving in the right direction for the safety of all involved and the security of the tenants' mail."
