Kids vandalizing mailboxes!!

So we have had problems with our mailboxes being jammed and bent because someone was trying to open our boxes!! Today I come driving around the corner and I see three boys about tweens, attempting to pry open various mailboxes with a metal stick of some kind and shoving things in the key holes kicking and punching the boxes! I stopped and watched them, they saw me and continued!!! Parents were outside partying their asses off 20 feet away! So, I called the cops! What would you do. Parents wouldn't handle it so I figured the police would.

  • I would have called the cops too. It's a felony to mess with mail boxes.

  • You did the right thing. I hope they don't do it again.

    Last fall when the signs were up all over the city for the elections, I saw a couple teens vandalizing one of the signs. I was driving and there were lots of cars going by but they continued. So I honked my horn to let them know I saw them, those hoodlums.

  • Yepp I would have done the same thing! LolosMom is right. It IS a felony to tamper with peoples' mail or mailboxes. And apparently since the parent's don't give a shit about what their stupidass kids are doing, I'm sure the cops will!

  • You did the right thing.
    Did the police show up and catch the boys?
    I carry a disposable camera in my glove box in case of an accident (cell phone pictures aren't the greatest) and one of them would have been great at that moment if the boys had left before the police had arrived.
    I hope the boys were caught and got into big time trouble.
