I can understand why someone would want to steal a package from your porch. It could be a golden nugget from Amazon or delicious cookies from aunt Margaret.

But why would scumbags want to steal your mail? I don't ever really get anything important in the mail. Oh I get plenty of bills, a bunch of junk mail, and maybe a notice to renew my subscription to  Miniature Donkey magazine. And don't forget the constant offers from Spectrum. Hey you guys had your chance to keep prices reasonable, there are much better options for TV watching now!

So are these mail pirates looking for checks to steal? Heck,I can barely cash a check that is written out to me without 5 forms of ID, let alone a stolen check. How do these people get away with that? Do I need a fake ID? Am I missing something here? Oops, there I go again sounding like I have a criminal mind. I just wonder what the attraction is of stealing someone else's mail.
There is a way to find out exactly what was stolen however, if you sign up for a service offered by the Post Office. It's called Informed Delivery. They will send you pictures of your mail every day, so that if it's ever stolen you'll know exactly what's missing. Seems like an awful lot of extra work for the delivery person, but until there are no more scumbags I guess we just have to do what we can to thwart them. Thanks to the Benton County Sheriff's Office for the heads up on this.

Due to a recent rash of Mail Thefts, we would like to inform the community of a service offered by the United States...
