Cornville AZ (January 9, 2014) – On January 8, 2014, a Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office deputy was assigned to a mail theft incident that occurred in the 1600 block of Aspass Road, Cornville.
The victim explained he had purchased 40 Morgan silver dollars from a Phoenix area coin supplier for $1260. The store mailed the coins on Friday, January 3, 2014. It was confirmed the package had been delivered to his mailbox the next day, January 4, 2013, by a US Postal carrier. The package was never located following delivery. The victim was originally under the impression his coins would be delivered by FedEx or UPS, but had since confirmed they were shipped via US Postal Mail. Based on this information, he hoped the package would be sent to his PO Box in Cornville, but eventually learned it had been delivered to his rarely used residential mailbox. On top of these issues, a signature confirming delivery of the coins was not required.
Deputies notified the US Postal Inspectors Office regarding the theft and they are assisting in the investigation.
