KILGORE — A recent rash of mail thefts have Kilgore Police warning residents to keep an eye out on their mailbox.
There have been five reported cases earlier this week and three more were reported today.
Lieutenant Roman Roberson of the Kilgore Police Department told us several checks were missing from residents mailboxes.
"That definitely suggests they are going to use those checks to commit other crimes," said Lt. Roberson.
There are several steps residents can take to help prevent mail theft.
Roberson suggests residents drop their mail off at the Post Office to be shipped and to never leave mail in your mailbox overnight.
