Outbreak of mail thefts reported
Mail is being stolen from mailboxes in Hastings and the surrounding area, according to Hastings postmaster Margaret Anfang.
Anfang said rural areas have been targeted in recent months, with Denmark Township being hit especially hard. She said that rural areas south of Hastings have also reported thefts. Mailboxes within the city are being hit, too. Just this week, at least two homes located along Westview Drive near the Hastings Country Club had mail stolen from them.
