Mail was stolen from drop boxes at five Sarasota County post offices on Wednesday

SARASOTA, Fla. (WFLA)—Local and federal investigators are wondering who is responsible for a string of mailbox thefts that occurred at the following post office locations in Sarasota County:   

  • 1661 Ringling Blvd, Sarasota
  • 935 North Beneva Rd, Sarasota
  • 2055 Siesta Drive, Sarasota
  • 302 Laurel Rd E, Nokomis
  • 333 S Tamiami Trail, Osprey

The mail was stolen from the collection boxes outside these locations after the post offices closed on Wednesday.

“This is not very common. If you feel uncomfortable, you can drop it off at the counter,” Smith said over the phone.

The Better Business Bureau suggests victims worried about identity theft check their bank statements and contact their credit bureau. Officials warn against leaving mail in collection boxes overnight. More at WFLA
