CUMMING, Ga. — Thieves stole mail from residents’ mailboxes, according to two separate Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident reports.

Between Nov. 11 and Nov. 12, a man in the 6400 block of Brittany Lane told deputies he placed two checks for bills and a thank you note in the mail.

On Nov. 13, the man noticed the mail was gone, the flag was still up on his mailbox and his carrier had not yet showed up.
