Surveillance video shows a man stealing mail from a community in Hudson.

Neighbors are warned to be on the lookout on Circle Lake Dr. It all started when a man noticed his mail stack was thinner than usual.

"I want them to catch him because people have all of their stuff in there, important papers," neighbor Donna Vorce.

She says the victim came to her this week worried about his missing mail.

"We don't want anybody to have their identity stolen, or anything, which is one of the big problems," she said.

Pasco deputies are now looking for the suspect seen in the video, who investigators say stole more than 40 pieces of mail Wednesday and got a way in a white, four door car.

One neighbor has since installed a lock device on their mailbox for protection, which can be bought at any home improvement store.

"Of course there are important things in there. I think it's important for us to try to watch out for each other," another neighbor said.
