Several mailboxes along Greenwood in Rochester Hills were reportedly damaged between Oct. 18-19, according to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Rochester Hills Substation.
According to the department, a deputy was dispatched Oct. 19 to the 3300 block of Greenwood after a woman reported her mailbox damaged. She told the deputy she had last picked up her mail at 3 p.m. on Oct. 18 and the mailbox was intact, but noticed the damage the following morning.
The woman told the deputy she didn’t know who might have been responsible for the damage and notified the deputy her next-door neighbor’s mailbox also suffered damage.
The deputy surveyed the neighborhood and found three additional damaged mailboxes, but none of the homeowners wished to file a police report, according to the department.
A deputy also was dispatched Oct. 16 to the 2700 block of Hartline Street for a report of damage to a mailbox and trash can, according to a police report.
The homeowner told the deputy he had placed two trash containers in front of his driveway at 7:45 p.m. the day before and when he went outdoors at 6:45 a.m., he noticed one of the trash containers in the middle of his driveway and the other on his neighbor’s lawn. When he went to retrieve the trash containers, he told the deputy, he noticed his mailbox was damaged.
According to the department, two wheels were missing from one of the trash containers and the mailbox had been knocked off its post. The department does not have suspects in this case.
