Sheriff: Vandals mowed down multiple mailboxes
RANDOLPH COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - Several Randolph County residents woke up Wednesday morning to find their mailboxes trashed.
Sheriff Kevin Bell told K8 News that someone destroyed about 20 mailboxes in the Summit Road area, west of Pocahontas.
“It looks like they just left the roadway and ran over the mailboxes with their vehicles and left the scene. It appears they did not stop. They didn’t take anything out of the mailboxes. They just ran them over and left the scene,” the sheriff said.
Bell added those involved could face serious charges if found.
“Several different things. Criminal mischief for one thing. The amount of mailboxes that are there, several hundreds of dollars of damage done and is probably going to be well over $1,000. It could rise to the point of a felony,” he said.
If you were a victim or know who might be responsible for these acts of vandalism, call the sheriff’s office at 870-892-8888.
The suspect’s vehicle is described as a white truck with a broken bottom running light.
A reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved.
