ATLANTA (CBS46) – he people of one neighborhood near Jonesboro have two choices: buy a P.O. box to get their mail in-person, or have it returned to sender.
Residents of the Villas by the Lake told CBS46 their mail stopped coming in October, but there was no official notice.
It gradually dawned on them as, day after day, their mailboxes seemed to always be empty.
It’s a more than six mile drive from the apartments to the post office in downtown Jonesboro.
CBS46 asked USPS officials why they’ve been skipping the neighborhood, and they say it’s because there are no locks on the community mailboxes. CBS Atlanta
