I have an idea. How about everyone just try to be decent humans instead of this ridiculous behavior taking other peoples things. Just an idea. 🙄

Sadly, but it looks like people are going to need to start locking up their mailboxes.

Maybe it's time to electrify mailboxes. Mail carrier delivers mail, then turns on the charge. Only mailbox owners know the code to turn off the charge. If it's not your box - you touch it, you fry.

We signed up with the USPS and the informed delivery app, helps a little you know exactly what's coming. Doesn't always show up the day it's suppose too, but it helps!

I had 3 checks stolen 2 weeks ago out of our box and one of them washed and rewrote for a nearby gas station.

Are we sure the mail was stolen, or did the postal carriers just throw a bunch of mail away again? 🤣

People need to be reminded it's a federal offence to tamper with US mail?

Tax time people trying to get government checks sounds like.

Read the post and realized I never even got a W-2.

We had some douche bag go down our road and bust our mail box and a few of our neighbors off the posts. I wish I could put something on them so when they hit it or try to take from it they get paint all over themselves and vehicle.

Maybe more than a slap on the hand with the tweaker situation would help the town just a little.

Our two newest boots, Officer Mitchell Mehrer and Officer Jesse Hellinger, decided to "take the ride" and be exposed to a Taser deployment! They handled it like champs. Welcome aboard, gents! ... See MoreSee Less

You guys are the most hilarious police department I’ve ever seen. This video is hilarious 😂😂😂.

This is a good, albeit painful task. If anyone they apprehend yells that police don't know what it feels like they can say, "Oh, yes we do.' Brave guys. Good job.

You guys are good sports, but it is important to know what your equipment will do. Just remember who was on the firing end of that taser. 😁

Jessie keep an eye on our daughter she's working at DSU!

Jesse was that a wrestling shirt you put holes in? Haha. Good job!

That’s horrible! Jack will like it. LOL

Haha, Jesse! Great job!

Dang !!!! 💙Yes, champs.

Woop woop! To Jesse Hellinger go!!

Way to go Jesse!

Let's see Matthew Jesse do this 😁

Lmao "smells like fried bacon!"

Wow. Not for me ...
