Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — Neighbors in a valley community are fed up with vandals who broke into their mailboxes. They want to know what it will take to prevent a repeat.
From the front, the box on Mission Ridge Drive, near U.S. 95 and Decatur Boulevard, looks perfectly fine.
"I opened the box and I saw sunlight right through it so then I went around to find out it was broken into," said neighbor Angel Willer.
Neighbors said someone pried open the back of the box about two weeks ago.
"The whole thing was popped open both sides," Willer said. "All boxes are empty."
Two community mailboxes on the street were broken into. While it’s unclear if any mail was stolen, Willer believes she may be a victim.
"I’m more worried about identity theft than the holiday cards and all that other stuff that’s going on," Willer said.
Fed up neighbors called Action News. They tell us the mailboxes have been vandalized in the past and they’re tired of going to the post office to retrieve their letters.
