Mail stolen from Lawrence Municipal Court

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Officials in Lawrence are investigating the theft of two days’ worth of mail addressed to the Municipal Court.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports reports the mail was taken Tuesday and Wednesday from a secure post office box in the downtown post office.

Municipal Court administrator Vicki Stanwix urged anyone who had sent mail to the court to call and determine if their mailings were received. People who sent checks for parking tickets, speeding violations and other fines are also encouraged to watch their bank accounts.

Lawrence police and the U.S. Postal Service are investigating how the mail was taken from the court’s secure box. Stanwix said postal officials are taking additional steps to secure the court’s mail.
