A mail collection receptacle at the Corrales Post Office was stolen Sunday night March 22. U.S. Postal inspectors are investigating.
Larry Salas reported the incident to neighbors, saying he had gone to the post office and noticed the smaller of the two collection boxes at the drive-through lane was missing. “Since I had just deposited a letter in that box on Sunday, I got worried, so I went into the post office to inquire what had happened.
“One of the postal workers told me that sometime over the weekend, someone had unbolted the mailbox from the concrete base and stolen the mail box.
“If you deposited anything in that box anytime after Saturday at 1 p.m. and Monday, you need to look into it. I know I deposited a letter with a check made out to the Corrales Comment between 5 and 6 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, and the mailbox was still in place at that time.”
