Mail Thefts

The Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office is investigating several reports of stolen mail in Custer and Wheatland Townships that have occurred within the last week. According to the Sheriff’s office, it is believed the thieves are targeting mailboxes looking for Christmas cards with money or gift cards inside. The targeted thefts, the sheriff says, should prompt residents to use caution in sending these types of items by mail.

The Sheriff’s Office is reminding residents that this is the time of year when people also fall prey to thefts of packages being left on door steps. Be sure to contact UPS, FedEx or any other delivery service if you are expecting packages, to schedule deliveries for times that someone is available to receive the package without it being left out in the open.

If anyone sees any suspicious activity or has any information on the mail theft, residents are encouraged to contact Sanilac County Central Dispatch at 810-648-2000 to report it.
