 The MPD is investigating damage to two mailboxes caused by some type of firework. Around 4:20 a.m., officers were sent to the 700 block of Ziegler Rd. for what witnesses first thought was a loud gunshot. About 40 minutes later a second call came in from Grayhawk Trail where a similar detonation took place inside a mailbox. The homes are about four miles apart. It is not known if they were specifically targeted or if these were random criminal acts.
