Patrol units responded to calls around 1 a.m. Monday that a white vehicle was driving in the Kingsport subdivision while a passenger smashed mailboxes with a pipe.
The mailboxes start out blue. Then, probably after some graffiti is scrawled on them, someone is painting over them in green or black paint.
Ornate brass mailbox slots are being ripped out of South Side homes, to be sold for scrap metal. CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports.
Every mailbox in Western Springs was checked by police in Western Springs and U.S. Postal Inspectors overnight, after a pipe bomb was found in one earlier.
