Don't leave letters in your home's mailbox for the letter carrier to pick up. Drop them in a USPS box or take them to the post office.
On the nights of August 15/16 and August 18/19, mailboxes and some unlocked cars were hit by thieves on the following cul-de-sac streets in North Buckhead:
3655 Roswell Rd (by Roswell Rd in front of Party City) - Drive-up Mailbox
3500 Peachtree Rd (Phipps Plaza to the left of the Tavern when viewed
from P'tree) Walk-up Mailbox
3637 Peachtree Rd NE (at Kinko's, south of Peachtree near Circuit City) Walk-up Mailbox
3172 Peachtree Rd NE (near White House Restaurant) Walk-up Mailbox
3155 Roswell Rd NE (near Cotton Exchange building) Walk-up Mailbox
3954 Peachtree Rd NE (at Kroger near Brookhaven MARTA) - Walk-up Mailbox
5400 Glenridge Dr NE
If you know of other mailboxes in helpful locations, please let us know.
Warning: If the USPS box you find is nearly full and your letter would not drop completely out of sight, take it elsewhere.
For what it is worth when I called USPS to
report the theft they said their policy was to "discourage people from
posting mail in their own mailboxes owing to nationwide mail theft" -
