Eagle County Sheriff’s Office reports stolen packages in Sweetwater Road, Dotsero area
Deputies with the Eagle County Sheriff’s Office are alerting residents in the Sweetwater Road area to packages and mail being stolen from resident mailboxes around the Fourth of July weekend. Several residents have specifically reported missing items that were expected on July 2. Deputies want to encourage residents to call in to report if anyone else may be missing mail or packages from your residence mailbox.
Several packages in question showed they were delivered on July 2 between the hours of 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. One resident waited to report until after mail was delivered on Friday and another resident stated their family was home all weekend but thought a package might have been misplaced when they never received it. The United States Post Office shows items were scanned as “delivered” at each of these locations.
Deputies are asking residents in that area to notify authorities if anyone has any additional information or camera footage of suspects or a vehicle because there may be other unknown victims of the package or mail thefts.
