A man on Ballard Drive told police he put a prescription in his mailbox to send to his prescription provider. He said he noticed the next day that his mail flag was still up despite the mail truck being there the previous day. He said he looked inside his mailbox and the prescription was gone. He said he spoke to a postal worker who said there were ongoing issues with mail being stolen in the area. The postal worker also said she saw someone in the man’s yard the other day with a sleeping bag and a pot, attempting to catch a squirrel. The man said he was unable to get a description, but he also found a suitcase in his driveway and wanted police to come to look through its contents. A patrol officer was dispatched to the man’s location to check out the suitcase.
Got sleeping bag, prescription meds & a pot? Catch squirrel!
