Hundreds of mail boxes have been broken into lately according to a post on Elk Grove Online.

Lots of homes in the Vineyard area off of Calvine Road and Vineyard Rd have also been hit by mailbox theft in both community and single mail boxes. Locked or not, thieves broke into mailboxes regularly since around August 2014. Timing coincides with California's big release of non-violent criminals that the state let go b/c it doesn't have room for them in prison.
