Kingsport police need your help in finding two people who they believe is behind a recent string of drop box payment thefts.

Between Feb. 3 and Feb. 10, multiple rent payments have been reported stolen from drop boxes at seven different apartment complexes throughout Kingsport. Those apartment complexes are, Bloomingdale Terrace Apartments, City View Apartments, Allen Creek Apartments, Brandy Mill Apartments, Allandale Falls Apartments, Model City Apartments, and Lynnfield Ridge Apartments.

Some of the rent drop boxes were unsecure, while others had at least some level of security. Police want to make management and tenants of these and other local apartment complexes aware of these incidents and adjust their rent payment procedures accordingly.

Detectives believe the same people are likely responsible for all of these thefts.
