Cases of mail theft may have tapered off at the Quincy Post Office, but one incident stands out.
Although it was reported to the Plumas County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 4 that someone stole mail containing a check; that theft actually occurred sometime in May 2020.
The check made out to the Galeppi Ranch Home Owners Association was originally for $45. Someone changed that amount to $4,500 and recently cashed it, according to information from the sheriff’s office.
Quincy Postmaster Sandy Rose said Thursday morning Jan. 7 that she didn’t know about that particular incident, but reports of mail theft have declined since the holiday rush.
The sheriff’s office is still gathering information on mail thefts, according to Detective Steve Peay.
If someone thinks they are missing mail or a package, Peay is asking everyone to contact the sheriff’s dispatch center at (530) 283-6300 and ask for Steve Peay.
