Rural Carrier Joel Woodward was recently delivering mail in Agency, MO, when he noticed a series of open mailboxes on his route.
Then he spotted individuals in a vehicle ahead of him take mail from another box — leaving it open before speeding off.
Woodward alerted authorities, who soon located the automobile at a vacant house nearby and arrested two suspects.
The Postal Inspection Service was notified that around 100 pieces of apparently stolen mail were found inside the car.
The suspects are facing criminal charges.
