Investigators looking into possible mailbox theft in Summerville neighborhood

BERKELEY COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Berkeley County deputies are investigating several reports of someone going through mailboxes in Summerville's Sangaree neighborhood.

Deputies say they received several calls from residents Friday morning who woke up to find their mail all over the ground, and in some cases open.

Many residents were shocked to hear what happened.

"As far as people going through people's mailboxes, it just seems kind of odd," said Buddy Petersen, a Sangaree resident of nearly 20 years.

"You don't know if you're getting the stuff you're supposed to have," he added.  

Investigators have not identified a suspect.
