Hundreds of mail items found stashed

5:08 pm on 21 July 2015

Police and NZ Post are working to return about 1500 items of mail found stashed at an Auckland property to the rightful owners.

The mail, largely unopened, was discovered at a house in Waterview yesterday, after tip-offs from Avondale residents on a police Facebook page.

Most of the mail is between three and 12 months old, largely from the Waterview and Mt Albert areas.

NZ Post is sorting through it, and aims to re-deliver the mail within the next couple of weeks.
