The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Office has received multiple reports of thefts from mailboxes over the last week especially in the areas of Pemberton and Madison Lake. Those responsible are likely looking for sensitive information or personal checks that can be altered.

The Sheriff’s Office encourages residents to drop off outgoing mail in secure receptacles and retrieve incoming mail from their mailboxes as soon as possible. We also ask that anyone witnessing possible related activity call 911 immediately.
