A kind NEWS24-680 reader wanted to alert neighbors to the presence of mail raiders in Lafayette Saturday, a crew of at least two people who systematically picked off mail left in customer’s boxes along Reliez Valley Road near Withers Avenue.
Our neighbor writes:
“…One neighbor picked up her mail as the mail carrier was leaving – but then left a bill with a check in the box to be picked up Mon.(!) Same neighbor later saw a car come down the road, and the passenger open boxes and she thought, put something in the box… nope!”
Turns out the occupants of that car were picking up mail and not delivering it. The neighborhood is talking and assessing their loss. Law enforcement has been notified.
