"Someone's mailbox" implies that the mailbox belongs to someone, wouldn't you agree? Stealing private property from anyone, no matter how inexpensive, is illegal.

If someone's mailbox contains mail, you may be looking at obstruction charges.

of course it is, it will be on private property I assume, therefor it is illegal.


yngprofmn
Yes, it is (especially if there is mail inside). Mail tampering is a felony.


Jim Bob
Yes,

it's a Federal violation.


malikababy
Yes. Why would you want to do it anyways? Is there a motive behind it? Do you not have anything better to do? Try picking up a book and read it!

The word "steal" is a tell.

hell yeah..

Yes, it is.
It is actually a felony
Even though homeowners are req'd to purchase mailboxes, they are considered property of the USPS...federal property.
