Hampton Police Investigating Christmas Mailbox Vandalizations
The Hampton Police Department is investigating a series of alleged mailbox vandalizations that occurred on Christmas Day, according to a Facebook post.
Hampton police alleges that multiple mailboxes were vandalized in the area of Little River Road, Woodland Road and Mace Road, per the post. Police said initial evidence suggested an individual on foot is responsible for damaging the mailboxes between 11 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. Saturday.
In a photo posted to Facebook, Hampton police showed one mailbox on a wooden stake that had been completely removed from the ground.
"Evidence at the various scenes indicate a person on foot may have committed these acts," Hampton police wrote in the post.
