Another reminder- DO NOT mail items from your home mailbox. Use a USPS blue box which is secure. Our area is having mail taken from mailboxes. A suspect will take mail, often containing a check used to pay a bill, and "wash" the check. "Wash" means using a solvent to wash away the ink on the check. They now have a clean, blank check they can write out for their benefit. Please contact us for any suspicious activity you see. Use 911 for the best response. We want to check on a person or car instead of hearing about it later. We also recommend using a locking mailbox for the best protection.
