    Police in Quincy, Massachusetts continue to search for the woman who was recently caught on surveillance video taking a credit card statement out of a stranger's mailbox.

    The video shows the woman walking up to the person's door Friday to drop off a restaurant menu, then taking an envelope from their mailbox.

    "Right now, we only have one victim that has come forward," said Quincy Police Sgt. Karyn Barkas. "We believe she was using it [the menu] as a ruse to approach everybody's front door step."

    Police said unreleased portions of the video show the woman approaching several other homes on Hamilton Avenue.

    Marie Therrien lives four doors down from the victim's house.

    "I would have no idea what she would have taken," said Therrien.

    She said she doesn't think any of her mail is missing but she's not certain.

    "I get so much junk mail in with my bills, so I don't even know," said Therrien.

    Police said they tracked down the owner of a car seen in the surveillance video which belongs to a man from Woburn. So far, no arrests have been made.

    Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call Quincy Police at 617-479-1212.
