|(April 24, 2019, 4:30 p.m.) -- LBREPORT.com has learned that the Long Beach resident whose door-bell video showed an individual (a stranger) taking a letter from the resident's mail box and opening it before the resident confronted her, retrieved the letter and chased her off the property, today (April 24) spotted the same individual in her neighborhood, called Long Beach police, who detained the individual...and then released her.
The resident, Shirah Booker, described to LBREPORT.com in her own words what happened earlier today (April 24) after she spotted the same individual walking in her neighborhood:

|Ms. Booker displayed video of the initial incident video on her Facebook page on April 18, and Los Angeles media outlets (as well as LBREPORT.com) reported the incident. (In LBREPORT.com's initial report, Ms. Booker asked that we describe her simply as "a resident," which we did, but other outlets identified her by name and she has allowed us to use her name here.)
Ms. Booker indicated on Facebook that when she called LBPD in response to the initial incident, an officer responded in less than five minutes. On Monday April 22 (the first business day after the intervening weekend), LBREPORT.com emailed LBPD a few questions about the original incident and how it handles similar incidents. LBPD responded:
Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia and the Long Beach City Council have cited LBPD's officially-reported crime stats in telling the public that Long Beach crime is down.
