Pitt County Vandals Take Out Over 40 Mailboxes

Residents in one Eastern Carolina county are upset after vandals destroyed more than 40 mailboxes and other property Monday night.

The vandalism happened on Sheppard Mill Road near Pactolus in Pitt County between 6:30 Monday night and 6 AM Tuesday.

According to authorities, between 40 and 50 mailboxes were destroyed.

Authorities found a golf club down the road and believe that it was used to cause the damage.

Wiley Price originally thought he was the target of an attack before he spoke to authorities.

Price also had a 600 dollar sign in his front yard stolen. He is offering a 100 dollar reward.

    We live not too far from this road, it is the most annoying thing to find your mailbox beat to poop. This happen to us at least 10 times last year. Think about it $10 per mailbox multiplied by 10 different replacements equals $100 worth of mailboxes we have bought in less than a year. I’m not talking about dings, I’m talking about we need a new post and everything b/c they beat it so bad. And I will admit, the first time was funny, but the other nine weren’t.

    Good ol' boys in need of some good ol' Texas justice. Save the club, and when they come back for more bafoonery (because they are dumb enough to), return the club heavy-side-first.

    Anyone want to bet that this was the act of middle to uppermiddle class teens? Not everyone has golf clubs. And, PCS is on spring break. If and when they're caught, parents will swear that their "sweet" "honor roll" child would NEVER do this!

    Are they going to attempt to pull any fingerprints from the golf club? If they were dumb enough to spend their time knocking over mailboxes, I doubt they'd have had the intellegence to put on gloves to avoid leaving fingerprints.
