Large parcel lockers were burglarized at the Navasota Post Office – which keeps its doors open day and night – sometime between Jan. 11, at 5 p.m., and Jan. 13, at 8:40 a.m. Navasota Police Chief Shawn Myatt said 27 lockers had items that were reported stolen.
Last Friday, Navasota Postal Clerk Edward Kreeger said he is still in disbelief after about 45 parcel lockers were reported damaged at the post office.
“How can this happen in a small town like Navasota? They did the same thing to post offices in College Station, Bryan and Hearne. They all got in the (lockers) the same way, so they knew what they were doing,” Kreeger said.
College Station Police Department Public Information Officer, Lt. Chuck Fleeger, said two College Station post offices reported a total of 18 thefts and two criminal mischief offenses for the same type of incident. Investigators said 26 post offices have been burglarized since December.
