I should think there would be security cameras viewing the facility's entrance areas, and/or alarms on boxes that would alert appropriate agencies if opened by force.

Harold Zimmerman - wearing a hoodie is an easy way to thwart video cameras. The hood covers enough of the face to obscure identification of thieves.
Video cameras are a false sense of security. NEVER let your guard down.
Also COVID has many people continuing to wear masks.

It should be noted that in addition to the Black Ave Post Office, the Hacienda Post Office was also hit on the same day. Happened on Sunday 9/26 between 4 & 6 AM.
