Putting a crimp in the holiday
January 4, 2024 | View PDF
Some holiday cheer was blunted last week by two incidents just before Christmas. Around 2 p.m. on December 23rd, it was discovered someone had broken into the outdoor mailbox at the Walterville Post Office. An investigation by the U.S. Postal Service is currently underway.
The following evening, McKenzie and Eugene/Springfield firefighters responded to a vehicle fire just before midnight. Upon arrival at the scene, east of the Thurston Road/Highway 126 intersection, they encountered an abandoned travel trailer that was fully engulfed in flames. Oregon State Police also assisted but no license plate or VIN numbers were found to help identify the owner of the trailer.
