Edmonton’s Community Canada Post Mailbox Break Ins are on the Rise this Christmas Season
Well this sucks. Community Canada Post mailboxes have been getting broken into more frequently this Christmas season.
The assumption is they’re looking for monetary Christmas gifts and small packages – despite packages having to be picked up at local Canada Post depots around Christmas time.
In April of this year, over 500 mailboxes were broken into in Ardmore and Fort Kent, Alberta. Four people were arrested. They were all male, one 25, one 18, and two 17 year olds.
If these break ins weren’t enough – what about the flyer and junk mail littering problem?
Maybe these community boxes should have 24 hour CCTV pointed toward them? Maybe the keys to enter these mailboxes should be more secure?
What are your thoughts on these community mailboxes? Are you for them or against them?
