Sheriff Patrick Ray is asking for your help in solving a recent rash of mailbox vandalism incidents.
"We've had multiple reports of mailbox vandalism in the areas of Jacob's Pillar Road, Blue Springs Road, the Old Blue Springs Road, Bethel Road, Banks Pisgah Road, and Whorton Springs Road," said Sheriff Ray.
"We do have a suspect vehicle, a smaller truck. It's a white truck, believed to be a Ford Ranger. We ask you to be aware of your surroundings and if you have seen a vehicle damaging a mailbox or should see a mailbox vandalism, call the sheriff's department at 597-4935 or call the crime tip line at 464-6400," he said.
"These vandals are going around in this smaller truck and using some kind of bat or stick to bash in mailboxes. We ask that you keep your eyes and ears open and if you hear or see anything suspicious we urge you to call us at the sheriff's department," said Sheriff Ray.
