On Wednesday, July 21st, 2021 at 6:45 am, the Seward County Sheriff’s Office received a report from caller who had found their mailbox had been blown up. After a successful investigation conducted by the Seward County Sheriff’s Office, Seward County Fire Department, and the State of Kansas Fire Marshal’s Office two suspects were identified with charges pending. During this investigation information was gathered to connect at least two other separate incidents which damage to public property had occurred and one grass fire was started.
The Seward County Sheriff’s Office would like to remind everyone that causing damage to a mailbox can also be considered a federal offense with penalties up to three years jail or a fine up to $250,000.00.
