Beegle’s office first reported a dozen mailbox vandalism complaints and a report of a vandalized vehicle late last month, asking for information about the cases and for reports from other victims.
Last weekend, another rash of cases were reported. The same type of large pieces of masonry were used in the commission of many or all the crimes, Beegle said Tuesday.
Beegle said he expects the arrests of suspects on charges — some of them probably felonies — in coming days. Meanwhile, the matter remains under an investigation. Beegle said a truck owned by Leading Creek Conservancy District was damaged, and that crime alone may be considered a felony since it involves public property.
Beegle said at least 21 mailboxes were destroyed in two nights on Nichols, McCumber, Bowles, and other Rutland Township roads.
Nichols Road, McCumber Road and Bowles Road were destroyed and a car on Bowles Road was also vandalized. Concrete is believed to have been used in the vandalism.
