Rental Drop Box - Warning
Several years ago a group of self-proclaimed “gypsys” was travelling through Ohio and created quite a stir by perfecting the theft of checks and money orders from rental drop boxes. Cincinnati has been updated to consider these types of crimes as a regular threat from organized and non-organized criminal elements.
PLEASE BE AWARE: Utilize lighting and video, as well as regular clearing of the drop boxes, to help minimize the threat.
If additional reports occur, we will recommend the temporary suspension of these boxes.
Internal boxes are safer, but not perfect.
If your community has been hit by this kind of theft recently, please let us know.
Thank you for your attention to this issue!
