Hopefully the people doing this will see this and realize that this is a FEDERAL OFFENCE when a mailbox has been tampered in anyway!! “Once a mailbox is put into use, it is considered federal property. As such, federal law states that it is a crime to tamper or vandalize a mailbox or its contents. Anyone found guilty of such crimes can be fined and incarcerated.” (A federal offense means any crime committed on U.S government property.) “Tampering with the U.S. mail is a crime, as is theft of the mail and tampering with mailboxes and receptacles holding mail. All crimes related to the U.S. Postal Service are covered under 18 USC Chapter 83.” If one were to count how many mailboxes have been vandalized with in Portsmouth, this could be a substantial sentence for 2 or more individuals. This is a warning to those who think this type of recreation is OK, not to mention dangerous to your body. My question is - has your mailbox ever been vandalized like this too? Thank you for your time.
