OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – A woman accused of stealing mail allegedly told authorities she only took coupons and put “the important stuff back.”
Kaylin Polk, 23, of Rochester, is facing charges for mail theft, a felony, and driving after revocation.
The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office said Polk admitted she was “mailboxing.”
“I have a real problem with it,” Polk allegedly told deputies. “I take coupons out of peoples’ mail and go back to put back important stuff.”
Polk was stopped at Marion Road and 20th St. SE after a homeowner reported a mail theft in progress in the 6200 block of 19th St. NW in Kalmar Township.
