An Auburn woman said her mailbox has been knocked down several times since telling a group of teenagers to stay off her property.
Police were called to the woman’s Apalachee Church Road home after her mailbox was knocked down for the third time in a two week time period. The woman said none of her neighbors’ mailboxes had been damaged which led her to believe the teens were retaliating against her.
The woman said three white teenage males and one white teenage female had been cutting through her yard on a regular basis. After the woman confronted the teens and told them not to walk across her yard, the mailbox incidents began.
The officer advised the woman to attempt to catch the suspects on video and to call police if she saw them on her property.
