Bakersfield resident: ‘I’m getting to wonder if community mailboxes are all that safe’

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Neighbors in a southwest Bakersfield area are frustrated by the theft of their mail — again. And this time, the entire community mailbox is gone.

“Now with a whole high-security mail box just ripped off its pedestal, I’m getting to wonder if community mail boxes are all that safe,” Jo Flannigon said. She lives on Via La Madera, it’s in the area of Stockdale Highway and Allen Road.

Flannigon says she noticed the box was missing on Friday evening.She says the neighbors had mail thefts a few years ago when thieves broke into the community box. But, she called that a “low security mailbox.”
