Mitchell Co. authorities want mailbox vandals

MITCHELL CO., GA (WALB) - Mitchell County authorities are looking for vandals after a string of mailboxes were damaged throughout the county.

Around 10 mailboxes have been reported damaged to the Mitchell County Sheriff's Office.

Authorities say more than one person used a baseball bat or another object to smash in and knock over the mailboxes on several scattered streets.

"Some people may think that a mailbox is just a small crime but it is still a damage to property," said Officer Matthew Miller, Mitchell County Sheriff's Office. "It is still against the law."

Authorities believe there may be more unreported mailbox damages throughout the county. A victim is offering an undisclosed reward for information about the vandalism.

If you know anything about the crimes, call the Mitchell County Sheriff's Office.
