For years it's been said that mail service is on the way out in the modern age. But at least one Vonore man considers it still important enough to risk jail time.

Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Conway Mason Andy Self reported on Jan. 22 that someone had stolen mail from his mailbox on Corntassel Road.

Mason looked into the theft and eventually pegged Josh Ryan Morgan as a possible suspect. Mason talked to Morgan and Morgan admitted not only that he'd stolen Self's mail, but several other people's also.

If you suspect you're missing some mail and live in that area near Vonore, the Sheriff's Office has probably recovered your mail and will send you a letter regarding this incident that will detail what steps you need to take.

Detective Jennifer Bledsoe said the Sheriff's Office is consulting with the U.S. Postal Service about this case and the investigation is ongoing.

Bledsoe also said there will be a meeting at 6 p.m. on January 31, at the Vonore Community Center regarding this incident. If you feel you have been a victim in the case, you are encouraged to attend.
