MADERA - The Madera County Sheriff’s Office wants to warn residents again to be on the lookout for mail theft. Mail theft continues to be a problem, especially in the more rural areas of the county where residents have roadside mail boxes.  Stealing mail from an unsecured mailbox only takes a few seconds, but problems arising from the theft can take months or longer to resolve.

Identity theft and other types of fraud are the usual occurrences. Residents should consider placing outgoing mail the mail slots in the Post Office or handing it to a letter carrier; received mail should be picked up as soon as possible and not left in the mailbox overnight. Neighbors should watch out for each other and report any suspicious activity to the Sheriff’s Office immediately.
