Two Post Offices in Rural Maine Were Broken Into and Mail Stolen
File this one under the category, "What is the world coming to?"
According to a press release from Paris, Maine, Police Chief Michael Dailey, on January 14, they received a report of a break-in at the Paris Post Office on Tremont Street. This particular post office is on what locals call Paris Hill, which is several miles away from the larger town of South Paris.
This little post office is in the quaint village of Paris Hill and serves the people living there. Whoever broke in made off with "postal assets" and mail. Two days later, the post office in North Monmouth was burglarized and had assets and mail taken from there as well.
The local police departments turned these investigations over to Postal Inspectors, but it wasn't over yet.
On January 20, two separate postal letter carriers were robbed in Lewiston by a suspect who took unnamed postal property while armed with a knife.
