According to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office, an administrator reported the theft from the locked, standalone payment drop box located in the parking lot at 1316 Tamsen Street.

The drop box, used for customers to drop off utility service payments, was last seen undamaged at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jul. 3 and when officer workers returned to the District’s office at 9 a.m. on Sunday, they discovered the drop box had been damaged and an unknown number of payments may have been compromised explained the Cambria Community Services District.
