The young man quickly rode away when he was spotted by the homeowner. The mailbox is directly next to the road, and at 5:30 in the afternoon, it’s a very busy road. Pretty brazen, considering that the crime is a felony and carries a penalty of either five years imprisonment, a fine or both.
Please keep your eyes open and report suspicious activity to police. And if you have children, you may want to remind them of how serious it is to poke around in mailboxes other than yours.
