Pottsboro Residents Warn Community of Mail Theft


POTTSBORO, TX---- A Pottsboro family is warning their neighbors tonight about thieves who have been stealing from area mailboxes. The family lives off North State Highway 289, near Lake Texoma.

They said they, and several of their neighbors, have reported letters being stolen out of their residential mailboxes. They said they figured it out when they noticed their box was left open with the flag up.

"This was our mail and it didn't belong to anyone else," Pottsboro resident Sandra Faulkner said.  "This is what made me so upset."

"I advise people to watch their mailboxes really close now because the sheriff said it's happening all over Grayson County," Pottsboro resident Tim Faulkner said.

They said the thieves strike at all times of the day. The Grayson County Sheriff's Department reports that in most cases, mail theft is a class-B misdemeanor which is punishable by up to 180 days in jail, a fine up to $200 and probation up to two years.

So far, no one has been charged in these crimes.
