Theft Of Mailbox Being Probed

Posted: November 20, 1986

Missing: One U.S. mailbox.

Postal Service authorities and police are looking for a blue mailbox, complete with eagle insignias, that was stolen from the corner of Cottman Avenue and Leon Street.

The box, which had been bolted to the ground, was reported missing on Nov. 13.

James Covert, superintendent of the Postal Service Boulevard Station, Levick and Revere Streets, reported the theft to police after a postal worker

went to the corner to empty the mailbox, and discovered it missing.

Police said Covert told them the last time the box was seen was at midnight on Nov. 12 when it was emptied.

Postal inspectors confirmed they were investigating the disappearance of the box and refused further comment.

Police said it would be impossible to determine what was in the box when it disappeared.
