UPDATE on mailbox vandalism occurring weekend of January 30:
Hilliard Police Officer Hyda Slone had the following information regarding the mailboxes that were knocked down last weekend:
“It appears there were 3 male suspects. One on foot and two in a car. A suspect vehicle was possibly a tan pick-up truck. We didn’t receive any other tips or information on this.
[HPD] would like to take official reports from anyone willing to do so on these damaged mailboxes. By allowing them to do this, we may be able to up these charges to a felony if we get enough victims/loss. Even though most folks don’t need reports for insurance purposes, we will be able to pursue this further by upping the cases to a felony.
Anyone wanting a report to assist us in this can contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org and just give me their address where the mailbox was damaged, the owners driver’s license number, phone number we can reach them at, and the approximate cost it will take to replace the mailbox. Officer Mike Metz will take all of these reports and then I can send them back a copy via email.
If they don’t want to send it through email, they are more than welcome to call or stop by our agency.”
