Pumpkins damage mailboxes

Police have no idea who committed the acts of vandalism over the weekend.
Call it the great pumpkin caper.
Starting late Saturday and continuing into the next day, about 25 seperate cases of mailbox vandalism involving pumpkins were reported in the area, police said.
The round, orange weapons may have come from the 1500 block of Ben Roe Drive, when a patch of pumpkins were reported stolen at 12:11 a.m. Sunday.
