NORCROSS, Ga. - Police in the Atlanta suburb of Norcross are searching for suspects after dozens of mailboxes were pried open at an apartment complex.

Police say about 50 mailboxes were pried open between 4:30 a.m. and 5 a.m. Tuesday at the Las Colinas Apartments on Brook Hollow Parkway.

Authorities tell WXIA-TV the suspects were driving a gray or light blue four-door SUV, and surveillance video captured one of them prying open mailboxes. WSB-TV reports that one suspect took as much mail as he could carry to the vehicle.

Norcross is about 18 miles northeast of downtown Atlanta in Gwinnett County.
