ATLANTA -- Two men are in custody after they were caught trying to steal mail from Atlanta mailboxes.

The suspects were spotted shortly before 2 a.m. Wednesday outside the Kroger at Howell Mill Road and Bellemeade Avenue in northwest Atlanta.

Atlanta Police said the suspects, whose names have not been released, were apparently using strings to somehow reach into two U.S. mail drop boxes and a FedEx box outside the grocery store.

A witness reported the suspicious men to police, who arrived and arrested them.
