Egg Harbor man arrested for looting mailboxes during hurricane

    Quick, name one thing you probably paid little to no attention to as you waited for Irene Saturday.

    Unless you also happened to be waiting for your favorite magazine to arrive, it’s likely the pounding rain stopped you from grabbing the mail.

    So one Egg Harbor Township man decided to do it himself.

    The 25-year-old Somers Point resident was arrested, the Inquirer reports, and charged with mail theft, possession of stolen property and possession of marijuana under 50 grams.

    His 24-year-old buddy was also arrested, but for outstanding warrants. Police returned the mail.
