Mail Theft Suspect Arrested

On Saturday, police said they caught a subject on a bicycle with mail from approximately 25 residents and were investigating the crime. Police were able to catch the suspect after a resident was following the male in a vehicle and keeping police up to date on the suspects location. No other information was available on that incident.


  1. Petty reporting on a petty theft. Stick around long enough, you might catch a kid stealing a candy bar.

    • So theft should now be excused? Is that what you’re saying? Your comment makes no sense.

    • So, Margaret! You approve of people stealing? Is that it? Are you talking from experience? Maybe the cops should check YOU out.

    • Yup, we should have headlines for people who jay walk, litter, don’t stop at red lights/stop signs, etc. We should even build more prisons to throw them all in. We imprison more people than multiple other countries combined, and closing prisons would be symbolic of a safer society. But I’m paranoid and I call the cops on my neighbors and people in my neighborhood all the time.

  2. A theft is a theft ….. petty or not. Cut off his hands and he will never steal again! Personally, I’d shoot the bastard!
