In a related post that I put up on Apr 15, 2007, there was an R2D2 mail box stolen (thanks for the article Chris).
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.
