Woman’s mailbox blown up by M-80

ELYRIA TWP. — A woman’s mailbox was blown up by what appeared to be an M-80 on Sunday, police said.

Officers were sent to investigate the complaint at 12:54 a.m. Sunday after the woman, who lives in the 6000 block of Antrim Road, reported she heard a loud boom and found her mailbox in pieces. The woman had no idea who had blown the mailbox up, and neighbors said they did not see anything, according to a police report.

Police said it appeared as if a firecracker, possibly an M-80, was used to damage the mailbox.
