I received a call from our Discover card company inquiring if we had written a check for $1,500 for remodel work. We didn’t write a check; our mail was stolen from our mailbox – again!
A year or so ago, I saw two men in a late-model Cadillac drive up to my mailbox, remove our outgoing mail and drive off. I still see them around town every once in awhile. I wonder if their mother knows what they do? I want to warn everyone who has a mailbox that is accessible to these non-upstanding citizens of Merced to watch your mailbox and report any theft to law enforcement and to the Postal Inspector because it is a federal offense to steal mail.
We know that we are not the only ones that have been victimized. They are return crooks.
Never miss a local story.
