SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - The Shasta County Sheriff's Office is investigating a few cases of mail theft during one of the busiest times of the year for the post office, and thieves. 

The Sheriff's Office says that the best way to prevent mail theft is to remove mail from the mailbox as quickly as possible. 

Additionally, having a carrier hold the package for you and also installing security cameras are good ideas, according to the Sheriff's Office. 

"I always suggest security cameras if you have them on your front door that notifies you of times of deliveries and who is coming and going from your residence on a daily basis," said Sergeant Caleb Macgregor of the Shasta County Sheriff's Office. 

The majority of theft and vandalism cases involving mail are handled by postal service investigators.
