Postmaster Lydia Jauregui-Cook is considering installing security cameras in the lobby of the Los Alamos post office after vandals burgled two 1950's bronze mailboxes early Thursday morning.

Jauregui-Cook, who has been the postmaster for 10 years, said the break-in at 497 Bell Street is one of five incidents since she began working for the small-town post office.

The damage was most likely caused by a small crowbar or a large screwdriver, which was used to pry the mailboxes open at the top and sides, according to Waldo Rodriguez, a Los Alamos resident who is employed with the Goleta post office plant in the maintenance department.
