Four adult males were arrested on suspicion of mail theft and illegal drug possession in Palos Verdes Estates early Tuesday morning, police said.

Just before 3:30 a.m., an officer performed a traffic stop in the 200 block of Palos Verdes Drive West. When the officer searched the vehicle, he found numerous pieces of stolen mail from Rancho Palos Verdes and Palos Verdes Estates, said Sgt. Steve Barber of Palos Verdes Estates police.

The officer also found drug paraphernalia in the vehicle, he said. Police said there were more than 40 pieces of stolen mail.

The four men, all from Los Angeles, were taken into custody. No further information on the suspects was immediately available.
