CBS News

NEWARK, N.J. -- Officials are issuing a holiday mail alert.

Cards or letters from Newark may not make it to their destination. This after thieves tried to rob four mail carriers there over the past five weeks, and got away with two keys to those blue street mailboxes.

CBS2's Tim McNicholas has more what that means for holiday gifts.

One by one, people drop their mail into the locked blue boxes in zip code 07017. There's just one problem: On Monday, an armed robber got away with a mail carrier's postal key.
