Entire mailbox sections stolen in Ponoka County

There are two areas where suspects stole entire mailbox sections

Some Ponoka County residents were unable to get their mail owing to the fact that entire sections were stolen.

Ponoka RCMP reports that two locations west of town had entire Canada Post mailbox sections pulled from the concrete pads.

The first report came in Oct. 28 at the Highway 53 and Range Road 265 location. Police say unknown suspects stole one section from the cement pad overnight.

The suspects showed some real desire to pull these mailboxes as they are believed to be the new mailboxes. At Range Road 265 one concrete pad was pulled several metres from its original spot.

At this time there are no suspects, witnesses or surveillance video.
