ROGERSVILLE, Mo. --  Tonia Kotulski has lived in her neighborhood in southeast Greene County for 15 years.  She never had a problem there until this week. "I thought what in the world, was that just a crime?" said Kotulski. Shortly after putting a bill in the mailbox at her curb, Kutulski saw a woman drive up to her mailbox, open it and brazenly swipe the contents. In spite of her shock, Kutulski immediately went to her bank, where she saw deputies with another woman whose mailbox had also been hit. In all, five mailboxes in the area were targeted on Monday.
