Thieves are targeting post offices in rural areas right here in the Big Country. Seven post offices were broken into in less than two days.

Post offices in Merkel, Trent, Lawn, Sweetwater, Colorado City, Coleman and Novice have been hit. In most cases, the thieves broke into the collection and drop boxes. In Lawn, they were able to break into the actual mail room.

Since this has become a federal investigation, information regarding what was stolen has not yet been released.
