Video: Post Office Investigating After Mail Found Opened and Scattered Around Ohio Neighborhood

COLUMBUS (Tara Morgan) — An investigation is underway after families in one neighborhood found their mail ripped open and strewn all over the place. It happened in the Edgewater neighborhood near Hilliard.

The post office fielded nearly a dozen calls Friday about mailboxes wide open and letters ripped up on the ground. “I believe it’s some kids who don’t really understand what they’re messing with but they should learn,” said one homeowner named Philip.

Right after ABC 6/FOX 28 interviewed Phillip, three girls told us they found a stack of mail in a gazebo near the neighborhood pond.Tax papers and payment invoices were scattered around, with private information for anyone to see.
