2/10/18 COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – Two Columbia County postal service offices were exposed to break-ins into their delivery boxes over the weekend.
The USPS managers from both locations called the sheriff’s office on Monday morning to report some mail was stolen from their drive up mailboxes, after it was pried open.
The manager of the Ronald Reagan Drive office was unsure of how much mail the thieves actually took but told deputies that they usually have a lot more mail than there was.
Major Steve Morris with the Columbia County’s Sheriff’s Office gave some tips on how people can keep their mail and identity safe from prowlers.
“Mail thieves often follow carriers on their routes, striking within minutes after delivery, according to Major Morris.” “If you’re home during the day, pick up mail as soon after delivery as possible, ” Morris adds.
