Police searching for people blowing up mailboxes in Halifax

HALIFAX, MA (WHDH) - Police in Halifax are on the lookout for whoever is responsible for blowing up mailboxes with fireworks Sunday night.

Residents heard the explosions, some of which sent the mailboxes flying to the ground, about 12 a.m. in the area of Brandeis Circle.

Robert Cahill was one of the residents affected by the dangerous delivery.

“Usually I don’t pay much attention to loud explosions because I just figure it’s fireworks,” he said. “I went to sleep. I woke up about 1:30 a.m. because there was police and fire trucks out here.”

Down the street, Mark Abruzese woke up to find pieces of his mailbox scattered halfway up his driveway.

He says these explosions follow several car break-ins and something must be done.

“There’s been talk of starting up a neighborhood watch and starting security cameras with a lot of stuff going on,” Abruzese said. “A lot of neighbors want to see an end to it.”

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
