On 01-04-2019 the Raleigh County Sheriff’s Office received several complaints regarding the theft of mail. Dep. Shrewsbury responded to four locations in Bradley and one location in Beckley where citizens reported their mail was stolen from their mail box. Security cameras from one residence captured a vehicle believed to be driven by the suspect. The vehicle is a small dark blue four door passenger car. The footage was not clear enough to obtain much detail but the vehicle may be a Dodge Caliber or a Chevy Sonic. There have been no other reports of mail theft at this time.
If it is possible put your mail out for pick up just prior to your mailman running. As a precaution do not leave mail in your box overnight. Also if you are not going to be able to check your mail for several days make arrangements for someone else to do so or have your mail service put on hold while you are away.
