FORDHAM - Police are looking for the man they say broke into 62 mailboxes at a Fordham apartment building on Grand Concourse.

Surveillance video from 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning shows the suspect yanking on the metal mailboxes until they open. He's then seen on camera taking out the mail inside and opening letters. Residents in the building say they're very shocked about what happened, especially since their personal mail was opened by the suspect.

Building superintendent Mosse Lovera says he discovered the mailboxes this morning and checked the security cameras to see what transpired. Police told Lovera to tape up all the mailboxes, which is now considered evidence.  

Lovera says police also told him postal inspectors would investigate.
