BRENHAM - Police are looking into a series of widespread crimes involving mailboxes in surrounding areas of the Brazos Valley. According to news radio station KWHI in Brenham, the U.S. Postal service says mail boxes were burglarized in Brenham, Chappell Hill, Milican, and Old Washington between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
Meanwhile News 3's sister station in Waco, KWTX, reports that Milam county investigators are looking into a series of mailbox break-ins at several post offices west of the Brazos Valley - including Milano, Buckholts, Rockdale, Cameron, and Rogers. These two happened over the weekend.
