Dozens of mailboxes rummaged through in Roswell

Posted:

ROSWELL, Ga. – Thirty-six mailboxes were rifled through April 1 at the Riverwood Apartments on Riverwood Lane.

Witnesses told police they spotted a suspicious person removing light fixtures from around the mailboxes. When police arrived, they found the mailboxes pried open and mail opened.

Thieves often rifle mailboxes this time of year looking for IRS tax return checks to steal. The IRS recommends having refunds deposited electronically into the recipient’s bank account for better security.
