WEST CONCORD, Minn. - The West Concord Post Office has been dealing with vandalism and other nuisance issues since as far back as the 2017 holiday season.

"We have a couple documented cases of you know some true vandalism but a lot of it is just nuisance stuff. They're coming in and moving things around, tearing up some papers, little pos-its that are available, moving posters around and tearing those up a little bit," explains Chief of Police Shannon Boerner. Boerner suspects that the vandals are likely kids. "Know where your kids are and what they're doing... If you're sending them to the park, let's make sure they're going to the park.

The post office tells KIMT that their lobby is currently open 24 hours a day because many community members work outside of West Concord, and aren't able to access their P.O. boxes during business hours. Outside of business hours, the front window is closed and there is no staff in the building. They don't want to have to lock their doors at night because of the reoccurring issues.

The West Concord Police Department is asking the public to contact them if they have any information or notice anything suspicious around the post office.
