WICHITA, Kansas – The investigation into some stolen mail continues, and the victims can expect calls from the postal inspector.

The Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office found mail stolen from hundreds of victims in August.

It came from mailboxes around the county but mainly east Wichita.

Now, the US postal inspector is involved.

“So if somebody gets a phone call from somebody identifying themselves as the postal inspector, that’s what that phone call is in reference to, is to let you know that you have been a victim of a mail theft,” said Lt. Dave Mattingly, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office says it hasn’t been able to contact victims before now because the investigation keeps widening, and they have to follow the leads while they’re still hot. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
