Locking Mailbox (Residential)

Anyone have suggestions about a locking mailbox for residential use? Our mailbox is on a pole, not at the house.

I work third shift and the wife doesn't always get the mail on her way in. The good stuff goes to the PO box.

(We need a locking box because I just watched the "neighbor" kid open our mailbox, take some of our mail and saunter away. Police refuse to do a thing. Parents are bums who could care less. Ah, the joys of living in Oregon!)

Call the postal inspector. If memory serves me correctly, tampering
with or stealing mail is a federal offense. I think the postal inspector will take this seriously.

Definitely report it to the postal inspectors as well as your local Oregon postmaster.
