A man caught on camera rummaging through people's mail will have to answer to the letter of the law.
Police are hoping members of the public will be able to help identify the man, who allegedly stole mail from a Coombabah Apartment complex on Sunday, January 28.
They're stamping down on the behaviour, releasing CCTV footage of a man opening a number of the post-boxes at the Pine Ridge Road block units with a master-key, and taking a number of envelopes.
Check out the security tape below.
Anyone who recognises the man is being urged to get in touch with police.
