Mail that had been stolen from several Newark mailboxes was found Monday morning near a vehicle that had been abandoned on a bicycle trail, police said.

Newark Police were responding to a report of a vehicle in a stream along the James F. Hall Trail, near Apple Road.

“Officers determined that the operator of the vehicle had been driving on the bicycle trail westbound when the vehicle became disabled in the area of a pedestrian bridge,” police said. “The operator of the vehicle fled the scene of the collision.”

A check of the area disclosed discarded US Postal Service outgoing mail, which police said had been stolen, probably earlier that day, from mailboxes at Ritter Lane and Beverly Road, East Main Street and Tyre Avenue, and Ruthar Drive in Harmony Hills.

 

Police are trying to determine if the incident is related to previous mail thefts in Newark.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Fred Nelson at 366-7100 ext. 3119 or fnelson@newark.de.us.
