ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Mich. — The Joseph County Sheriff’s Office and Michigan State Police are investigating cases of mail tampering in Florence, Sherman and White Pigeon townships.

Many of the envelopes had been opened and contents removed.

The recovered mail was turned over to the White Pigeon Post Office.
