The Wayzata Police Department has taken several reports of thefts from mailboxes. 
The residential mailboxes were located in the eastern portion of the city with a majority along Bushaway Road and Central Avenue South. 
According to police, several of the mailboxes were locked and were forced open. 
The police department states that this is a crime that can additionally facilitate identity theft, credit and check fraud, and other forgery and fraud type crimes. 
This is a metro area issue and is not exclusive to Wayzata. 
Police recommend that you do not put outgoing mail in your mailbox. 
Collect any incoming mail as soon as practical after it is delivered. 
As always, watch out for your neighbors and call 911 to report any suspicious activity
