At 4:20 a.m. Nov. 8, an unknown make and model white pickup driven by an unknown subject pulled up to the mailbox and appeared to take mail. It is unknown if any mail was taken during that incident.

The vehicle plate was obtained, but the registered owner did not fit the description of the suspect. Later, a male called dispatch and stated he needed to tell his side of the story. When police returned the call, there was no response. No further investigation at this time.
