Police: Man Dressed As Woman Caught Stealing Mail In Dublin


Dublin police said the man they caught allegedly swiping mail from a handful of residential mailboxes may be connected to similar thefts in the area.

The most recent thefts were reported on Dunabbey Loop off Muirfield Drive.

An alert resident said she spotted a suspicious vehicle near the mailboxes and called police.

Police located that van on Havington Court, off of Tara Hill Drive.  

Dublin Police Lt. John DeJarnette said officers stopped the vehicle and found several pieces of mail that did not belong to the person driving the car.

Police identified the driver of the van as David Lashawn Robinson, and they said he was dressed as a woman.  

Records show Robinson has a lengthy criminal history and is currently on federal probation for forgery.

DeJarnette said he has reason to believe Robinson has committed other thefts, but he stopped short of connecting him to the recent rash in the area.
