LAMPASAS — The Lampasas Post Office was burglarized late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, police said.

Two outside drop boxes were cut open and several inside parcel pickup boxes were pried open, said Lampasas Police Chief Timothy Angermann.

Police believe the burglary could be related to other post offices burglarized across Texas in December and January, including Harker Heights, Salado, Copperas Cove, Temple and Holland.

“I knew we were going to get hit sooner or later with everybody else getting hit,” Angermann said, “But I was hoping they weren’t going to come this far.”

U.S. Postal Inspector Stephanie Hardin confirmed that post offices from Bryan/College Station to the Dallas-Fort Worth area have been similarly burglarized.

She said no traceable items, such as checks or phones, were stolen and investigators are currently relying on crime tips related to the burglaries.

The Lampasas case is under investigation, and police have no suspects.
