"Kids could be opening up the mail," Milford resident Thomas Prion said. "You don't want kids to see that."

A spokesman with Home Depot said they are assisting police with their investigation.

"We're obviously appalled and greatly appreciate the efforts of law enforcement to investigate this matter. We're actively cooperating with them and will continue to do so," said Home Depot spokesman Stephen Holmes in a statement Wednesday.

Police said there are no reports of anymore of the lewd letters sent Thursday. Investigators warned residents if they do receive letters that appear suspicious, not to open them.
