thats funny... i live on Easton Rd, Just past Lower Saucon Rd. I saw the mailman come yesterday, so I went out for the mail after a few minutes. There wasn't any. I asked hubby if he got it, he said no. This morning when I put my son on the bus, there was my Penny Power in the mailbox, and an advertisement card on the ground in the snow... Now I wonder?

Interesting! Someone had been opening our mailbox at night and on weekend after the mail was delivered. We know that the mailperson closed the box. It was never opened after the mail was delivered. We put a motion activated wildlife camera in the box to act as a deterrent. For months someone would be reaching in our mail box and turning the camera face down in the box-even when there was mail in the box? We duct taped it, we gorilla taped it up and it was still ripped from the wooden easel in the back of the mailbox. Then on Oct. 14, 2013 it was discovered that the camera was stolen. We reported it to the Lower Saucon Township Police, the theft wasn't mentioned here on the patch. We are still waiting for the requested police report. We believe we know who is behind the theft and ..........

@JK. That's crazy. And scary. Don't people have anything better to do?

Josh It is not a matter of having anything better to do, we believe it was done to destroy evidence and it is a CRIME to steal. Isn't it even a crime when you steal from a Gay couple? But dealing with what we believe is an obsessed stalker who we believe is being protected by the police for some reason, only heightens the scary. When they give you the impression that they believe they have "Magickal" powers, nothing is beyond feeding the delusion. If someone can get away with shooting a gun towards your property, evidenced by a bullet hole and getting away with it, stealing is a minor crime. What is to prevent them from doing the shooting again? That theft of the Gift Cards could have been done before the cards even entered the mailbox?
