The city sent out a notice on Friday asking people to be on the lookout for suspicious happenings near mailboxes.
Woodbury officials on Friday said there has been in increase in mail theft in the city recently.
Patch on Nov. 5 reported that several mailboxes had letters stolen from them around the 1400 block of Donegal Drive.
A notice from the city asked for those who are victims of mail theft, or notice anything suspicious, to call the Woodbury Police Department, 651-439-9381. It would be helpful to get a license plate number if possible, the notice says.
The Woodbury Police Department, on its Facebook page, put out some information from the U.S. Postal Service about how to prevent mail theft:
- Use the letter slots at your post office to mail letters, or give them to a letter carrier.
- Pick up your mail promptly after delivery. Don’t leave it in your mailbox overnight.
- Don’t send cash in the mail.
- Tell your post office when you’ll be out of town, so they can hold your mail until you return.
