ATTENTION EAGLE POINT HOMEOWNERS
There have been an unfortunate number of mailbox vandalism incidents in the neighborhood in the last few days. The HOA regrets that this is happening in our community and is committed to stopping the vandalism and holding those responsible accountable. We have been working with the Shelby County Sheriff’s department and the HOA is offering a $500 reward for information resulting in the arrest and prosecution of those responsible. Someone in the neighborhood must know something.

Below are photos of some of the damaged mailboxes. Each mailbox repair is costing between $200 and $500 and that’s hard on anyone’s budget, but particularly around the holidays. If you have any information please contact the HOA office.
If your mailbox has been vandalized or is vandalized in the next few days please call the Shelby County Sheriff’s office or call 911. It is important to report any incidents and to get a police report. Please let the HOA office know if you have been a victim and please send or bring a copy of your police report to the HOA office.
