Thieves broke into a mailbox outside the Newington post office and police are urging anyone who had deposited mail with checks or other forms of payment in it for mailing before the theft occurred to call the bank the funds would be coming from.
This is at least the third local community that mail has been stolen from in recent days.
Newington police said Friday that a mailbox located outside of the Newington Post Office at 75 Lowery Place was broken into and they believe it happened shortly after 2:30 a.m. Monday.
The last time that mailbox had been emptied before that was around 2 p.m. Saturday, according to police.
Anyone who dropped checks or other forms of payment in the mailbox between the last time the post office emptied the box and the time of the theft should contact their bank.
Anyone with information about the theft should call the Newington Police Department at (860) 666-8445.
On Monday, Newtown police said someone broke into the express mailbox outside the Newtown post office sometime between 2:30 p.m. Sunday and 6:30 a.m. Monday and stole mail.
