Luckly nothing was taken...So I'll be slowing in confirming deals. Post Office has a work order for the large mail box....16 mail boxes were broken into. Best regards, David PS Today's mail was taken back to the Post Office.

Listened to an interview with a police detective several years ago. The only thing I remember is him saying "fortunately for us most criminals aren't very smart"

Happens here a lot. In fact one day, someone ripped the entire box (contains roughly 20 mailboxes) out of the ground and took that!!!

As far as I know, I've only lost a couple ESPN magazines and junk mail. Haven't lost any packages coming here in Glen Burnie yet.

Side note: My old PO in Halethorpe, MD always managed to lose packages coming in for me. Including every insured one over 100 bucks (five for five were located at the Halethorpe PO and then "missing").

Wow....well thankfully everything is ok for you, David.

I've never heard of that myself, even when I had my home. But, I also lived in a kind of a rural area and had great neighbors to also watch things. I've heard of bashing them in with bats and whatever else, but not stealing from them or taking an entire stand (with mailboxes in them)....

Thank God, all is ok :)

Everythings okay....Its a small pain going to the main station to pick up the mail....but it's better than have my id stolen!! Best regards, David
Considering it's possibly a felony to mess with the mail, pretty stupid thing to do.

Amen! Best regards, David

yikes!!!
i hope everything turns out ok

Nothing stolen as I always pick up the mail....Best regards, David
People look for checks (IRS refunds) and for personal information for identity theft.
We have a very large apartment complex a few blocks away...It's so bad....that when I called for a home delivery (round table pizza)....they told me .....do you live at the apartment complex?...because if I did...that had so much trouble...that they would not deliver to anyone living at the apt complex! Best regards, David

Just a sign how the times can be desperate for some. Hope at least the person who broke into all of those boxes needed the money from theft to feed his kids.

Now days...usually someone using drugs or on welfare or a thief! Best regards, David

Looks like the mail locks have been repaired.....now I have to pick up Friday and Sat mails...and the new key.... So they only replaced the broken lock....and if it's like the old one..anyother break in will be easily....I hope it's a newer version! Fingers crossed. :)
