Mischief Makers Blew Up our Mailbox!!!

Don comes into bed last night and says not to worry about the charred paper in the kitchen. He told me that he heard this loud bang. He looked out the front door and smoke was coming out of the mailbox (ours is located out at the curb)! We forgot to get the mail out but even a software package that was in there wasn't too badly damaged.

The sheriffs deputy arrived and told Don that the same culprits had taken a statue from the front porch of another house and put it in the middle of the street, and took someone else's LARGE decorative something-or-other and put it out in the middle of another street! Awwwwwwww to be a kid(?) again... Sheeeesh!

We had a guy doing that around here, he blew up 12 mailboxes before feds caught him. He got 3 years in a federal pen.

Looks like they needed something stronger then what they used! Yes it is a federal offense to mess with a mailbox, as it should be.

You might want to file a complaint with the US Postal Inspection Service, Healthi. Here's a link to their on-line complaint form.

Thanks for the link! We did talk to our local PO this morning. They haven't had reports in the recent past of our situation. Thinking it's an isolated incident they recorded it there at our local office, but said pretty much not to worry unless it happens again and it looks like our mail is actually being targeted. LOL, Don's got a camera set up tonight. That would be a kick-in-the-pants if those miscreants show up again!

However, if the perps are readers of this forum, you've just given your plans away.

Maybe these guys were the culprits.

Yeah, down here they love to play "mail box baseball," where they drive around in a truck and somebody in the bed with a baseball bat tries to take out as many as possible. That's why we got a PO Box, but now everybody wants to know why we have a home address and a PO Box. So I politely inform them that if I ever find the guys who took out three of our mail boxes, I'd send them their way and see how long it took them to quit buying boxes and just rent a PO Box!!!

We don't call 911. At least not until the smoke clears and I'm not talking about the smoke from the mailbox.
