Thurston County Watch

A 27-year-old Yelm woman called on Thursday, Nov. 5, to report mail theft that occurred overnight at her home on the 300 block of Van Trump Avenue NE.

She told police that her mailbox does not lock and that several pieces of expected mail were taken, according to reports from the Yelm Police Department.

Assistant Police Chief Rob Carlson said good deterrents for stopping mail theft include checking your box often, purchasing a lock for your box and using post office box services.
