Mail thieves have been especially brazen recently, taking large mail boxes from in front of post offices. We all depend on the vital mail service. It is still a federal crime to steal mail.
Some of my mail went missing. I filed a mail theft complaint with the United States Postal Inspection Service, and I think it helped. At the very least, the postal inspectors were given information they needed. They are the true experts who coordinate with various law enforcement branches. Postal inspectors use proven remedies to address the problems.
We must keep faith in our mail services. Don’t get dismayed over mail theft. Support the necessary services the post office provides. The Bee each week publishes the pictures and names of auto theft suspects, maybe now is the time to include those arrested for stealing mail.
