Texas: Mail Thieves Use Sticky Tactics to Snag Personal Information

Dallas-Fort Worth – Some postal customers in Lake Highlands have reported a rather sticky situation after realizing that the big blue collection boxes outside of the post office on Northwest Highway and Ferndale Road had been targeted by thieves.

“I was able to run my fingers inside and it felt almost like a honey material, very sticky,” said Steve Hedrick.

Hedrick, who lives nearby, said he uses the collection boxes once or twice nearly every week out of convenience. But recently when he noticed he wasn’t hearing his mail drop to the bottom of the box, he reached inside.

“Mine was stuck. About a third of the envelope was sticking out,” said Hedrick.
