MORTON (WEEK) — Morton police are investigating a string of damaged mailboxes throughout the village.
Police Chief Craig Hilliard said “a few” juveniles have been arrested, but the investigation is ongoing.
Multiple neighborhoods were involved in the middle of the night over several days. The incidents took place in the Idlewood and Fourth Street area, Pennsylvania Court, and Polk Street.
Police received calls from residents, including one caller giving a description of the vehicle, leading officers to locate it and find a mailbox inside, resulting in the juveniles arrest.
The suspects used baseball bats and sticks to the destroy mailboxes, Hilliard said.
