Post office boxes ransacked
Someone has been stealing mail from the rural area west of Red Deer.
Blackfalds RCMP said that unknown suspects knocked over, damaged and entered rural post office boxes along the C&E Trail sometime between Sunday and Monday.
RCMP are investigating multiple complaints of mischief and theft of mail from the mail boxes.
The culprits also damaged lights on entry gates to homes along the C&E Trail.
Police are continuing their investigation and are asking anyone who may have knowledge of these incidents to contact Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or the Blackfalds RCMP at 403-885-3300.
Blackfalds RCMP are also reminding rural residents who receive their mail in rural mail boxes to collect their mail frequently.
With the Christmas season here there is more mail with cash and small gifts being sent. This presents an increased incentive for thieves to enter the mail boxes looking for loot.
