LOL, well it was only a matter of time. As soon as my friends and I saw the announcement on these mailboxes, we knew people were scheming and debating selling them on eBay 🙂

(CBS13) LOUISVILLE, Ky. A search of intergalactic importance is underway. But, it didn’t happen a long time ago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

A mailbox painted to look like the Star Wars character R2-D2 was stolen, which is a federal offense. It’s not just the droid the Post Office is looking for, it’s the mail inside. For each item of mail stolen, the thief could spend five years in prison.

“I think those guys have joined the dark side or something,” Rod Whitenack, Star Wars fan “why would you steal an R2D2 mailbox. Besides the fact it’s a federal offense, that’s just not cool, man.”

Postal inspectors are continuing to investigate.
