LEXINGTON — Lexington Police Department continues its investigation into the theft of mail from three USPS mailboxes at Lexington Center, confirming that a separate mailbox at the Town Office Building driveway remains unaffected.

The theft occurred sometime between 4 p.m. on April 27 and the morning of April 29, with the targeted mailboxes situated in front of the Post Office at 1661 Massachusetts Avenue.

Authorities have yet to release additional information about the suspect or suspects involved in the incident.

The department reassured residents that the USPS mailbox in the driveway servicing the Town Office Building and the Isaac Harris Cary Memorial Building was not involved in the theft.

Similarly, the two other drop boxes in the same driveway designated for town-related bills and documents for the Town Clerk’s Office were not believed to be compromised.

As a precautionary measure, Lexington Police are advising community members to use the lobby of the Post Office for mailing sensitive or personal information, particularly financial items such as checks or bill payments, to ensure their security.
