Mail thieves have struck again the area of Concord Blvd. & Kirker Pass Rd. in Concord.

As you can tell, they didn’t really care about the locking mailboxes.

It’s important to bring your mail in every single day, even if you have a locking mailbox.

Thanks to “The New Rhodesian” for the pictures.

When was the last time a conviction and long sentence given to a mail thief was publicized?

Wonders never cease, the degenerate folks trying to gather what info they can or their money. Going into other people’s mailboxes will just get you put in jail.

LOCKS ARE FOR HONEST PEOPLE. IF A LOW- CLASS SCUZZBUCKET WANTS YOUR STUFF(whether it’s locked in your car or mailbox), they’ll get to it! Hopefully, Concord police are patrolling the area. There has been ALOT of break- ins in that area.

Mail Thief are sure up to no good That correct jail time for them. Lock them up and throw the key away

Guess it’s time to get a P.O. Box.

Yikes! This is why we put a slot in our garage wall. It was a really easy do-it-yourself job. But we live in a neighborhood with no mailboxes, just the little boxes on the wall. Does anyone know if you have to have street-side mailboxes in certain areas?

We just found out that we are the newest victim in Identity Theft. We have had a locking mailbox for years. But ours we believe is because the mail carrier has delivered some of our mail to a house next door that has been empty for years. They do not have a locking mailbox. So once in a while I would check the mailbox to see if any of our mail was in there. And low and behold! I found an envelope from our tax man in there! So glad I found that. But who knows what I never retrieved from that mailbox that some tweeker has obviously found and used. So pissed!

I wish the FBI would prosecute mail theft. After all, It is a federal offense.

A few prosecutions and the word would get around.

Would be interesting to know how many criminals in Claycord who are arrested for mail theft actually get prosecuted for this federal offense.

My guess is close to zero. Brown & Obama could care less about enforcing laws that might put a few more democrat voters behind bars.

Police are worthless

We live in a neighborhood where all the mailboxes are street-side. But two blocks over, the carrier has to walk up to each house. Due to this, we don’t have a regular carrier. The other carriers alternate when they finish their regular route, then take turns delivering our mail (sometimes at 8:00pm).
No consistent mail carrier means they don’t “learn” the people on their route. Hence, our mail gets delivered to our neighbors on a regular basis. We don’t get their mail, but seems like they get our mail regularly. And this is the mail that our neighbors tell us about. I am almost certain that some neighbors either throw away or open our mail instead of putting it back in their mailbox for the carrier.
The USPS sure is putting themselves out of business.

And it’s not just mail from locked mailboxes that goes missing. We recently moved into a house off of Concord Blvd … and during the move we ordered a few things for the new house to be delivered by UPS. Most everything was delivered okay … but one recent package went missing. Our neighbor mentioned that she saw a car drive by slowly the other day … drove past the house … then backed up. A girl jumped out, ran up to the front door, grabbed the small box the UPS guy delivered a short time earlier, and then they sped away, She got part of the plate # and called CPD … but there wasn’t much that could be done after that. Welcome to the neighborhood we said :>(
