Early Monday morning, some deputies from JeffCo came to the 14000 block of Pallatin School Road
, south of Festus, to see about a damaged mailbox.
But while they were there, several more area residents reported waking
up to similar problem vandalism: mailbox damage by a "blunt object."
Then the deputies learned that their counterparts from Ste. Genevieve County to the south were dealing with a similar issue.
far, a pair of sixteen-year-olds have been hauled into juvy (a third is
wanted for questioning). Also, two seventeen-year-olds were questioned and
released, "pending the application of warrants," according to the JeffCo sheriff's office.
Anybody with info can call the JeffCo Sheriff's Office dispatch center at 636-797-9999.
Sheriff's deputies from Jefferson County and Ste. Genevieve County have announced they're trying to track down the jerk(s) responsible for smashing mailboxes in their jurisdictions.
