    We no longer have a drive and drop mailbox at the Joppa Post Office because it was continually vandalized. When the PO relocated it to a less convenient location, it was vandalized again. Now the only after hours drop is next to the front door with security cameras aimed at the ones who use it. Looks like the “fun” has moved north to Fallston.
