There’s been a significant number of thefts from mailboxes in the town of Battlefield.
The police department took to Facebook to warn the community about staying alert for suspicious activity in your neighborhood.
Officers say they do their best to conduct preventative patrols in residential neighborhoods, but they usually don’t know if a specific person should be removing mail from a mailbox.
Police ask that if you see someone driving around mailboxes and it appears to be suspicious, try to get a license number or vehicle description, then call 911 to report it.
Authorities don’t advise you to confront someone committing a crime.
