Improper Use Of A Mailbox Reported

It may be difficult to prove who has done it, but in at least two cases, Putnam County residents report finding a piece of paper in their mailboxes which makes disparaging comments about one of the candidates who ran for office earlier this month. One such incident occurred on Paran Road where a woman told the sheriff's office that she did not want things left in her mailbox that did not arrive through what was described as "the proper mail service." Indeed, the post office says it is illegal to place anything in a mailbox that has not been properly stamped and sent through the U.S. mail. The victim also told authorities that she did not understand why such a letter would show up in her box after the election was already over.
