Stolen mail found in Phinney Ridge, finder returns it to owners

February 18th, 2013 by Doree

Stephen tells us he found some stolen mail on his steps on Sunday morning, on 1st Avenue NW between NW 73rd and 74th streets. The mail belonged to homes on North 77 and North 83rd streets. He delivered the mail to the rightful owners.

So, what do you do if you find stolen – or misdelivered – mail? Do you take it to the right home yourself, or do you put it out for the postal carrier or drop it in a mail box?

Mail theft, suspicious cars stopping at mailboxes in Greenwood

December 16th, 2011 by Doree

We got a note from Dan, who tells us that suspicious cars have been seen stopping at mailboxes in Greenwood, and he’s found mail scattered around the neighborhood.

This morning I returned two sets of mail that were scattered in the neighborhood. One set of mail had the medical bills in them but the checks were gone. This was happening around Evanston to Greenwood Ave and 90th and the blocks around there.

He also says GAIN (Greenwood Aurora Involved Neighbors) North sent out a message on the same subject:

An SUV at 11 PM at 110th and Phinney was driving slowly and stopped at our mailbox stand which we can see across the street. We’ve never noticed this before, so my husband went out to investigate and saw that the car also stopped at other mailbox stands up the street.

Has anyone else seen this, and where?
