FLORIDA- People are breaking mailboxes and stealing packages.... Who do i talk to?
Honestly, I don't know how to handle this.
Nobody seems to care.

The Community office doesn't care..
Mailman is nice but doesn't do anything...I called local postmaster and after waiting an hour on hold, I lost the call...

My husbands meds were found by my grandson on the ground. I got those.
He's missing most of them.
I found a stash of Christmas cards by the side of the area where mail is distributed and placed on the outgoing.
No doubt there were cash cards in there.

This is a new thing. All here are homeowners, but now they're renting because they can't sell.ohgo22

ITS BAD. WHAT CAN I DO, CALL THE SHERIFF?????

If you can't get any help from the Post Master I would call the sheriff, they wont leave him on hold for an hour. It's horrible trying to get the P.Office to do anything, I had a situation where I needed to speak to the Post Master, forget about it.

Besides, it's theft and the cops should know. I would call them and file a report.

I'm going to have to file a report, not just for myself, but for all that vandalism done to so many.
I gave myself the worse headache yesterday, just watching how everything was pried open and people complaining, they just don't do anything about it. They just bitch.
I'm sure not only are they looking for drugs, but they're looking for any store gift cards, etc.

This is too much, and its a freaking federal crime!!!!!

Tampering with the mail is a federal offense. Call the Sheriff and report it. Ask the Sheriff to contact the postmaster. If all else fails, go public and contact a local t.v. station. They'll investigate.

You need to get this as much attention as possible. I agree with the poster that suggested you contact the media if all else fails.

People are depending on their meds, etc. Hopefully they'll catch the culprits and put them away for a while. Can you ask your mailperson/delivery person to ring your bell when they deliver? This way you'll have a heads up before anyone can get to your stuff.

Sorry this is happening to you, but..
Why wasn't the first thing you did call the police?
As you said, messing with the post is, I read once, a federal crime. And if not, it's still vandalism on a large scale.
A question: you are talking about those mailboxes that are placed near the curb like I see in movies all the time, right?
I never got that. Here in the Netherlands, and in Germany e.g., the mail is deliverd to mail-slots INSIDE the frontdoor or the building itself. No breaking them open without committing braeking & entering at the same time.

But, as the post had been dilivered into the mailbox, I don't think the postmaster has anything he could or would do. It's not his job, his buck stops when the post is delivered.

So...go to the police..

Get a mailbox at a pack and ship center. Your mail will be secure and by using a private facility over the post office you can receive UPS, Fedex, etc there too.

No more stolen anything.

Same thing here. I kept one eye on the box every afternoon (after delivery) and caught 'em in a few days. Talked with the young kid's parents and no more problems (so far).

what a dumb question. when is destruction of property and theft not something that you'd want to inform the police of? besides, these are federal offenses in this instance since it involves the mail.

Ok I called the Sheriff in Polk County. He says he will get to the bottom of it.
He's sending deputy cars the same time mail is delivered and will also talk to the bigwigs at the home owners association.

I will be there. I want to make sure something is done TODAY.
