ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – More than half the neighborhood in a Northeast Heights community woke up to no mail not because it was a day off for the postal service, but because a pair of group mailboxes were stolen overnight.
Where there used to be two of these big group mailboxes, all that’s left are a few screws and washers that have been left behind. Residents we spoke with said they are confused as to why someone would want the entire box.
When Lyn Wilcox has tried to reach the U.S.Postal Service in the past, she has not had the best of luck.
“It rings and rings and rings. Nobody answers, there’s no answering machine,” said Wilcox.
