LAKEWOOD, Colo. — The Lakewood Police Department is warning the vandal or vandals who blew up a mailbox that they committed a serious crime.



Investigators believe the mailbox was destroyed by fireworks in a south Lakewood neighborhood around 3 a.m. Thursday.

The department wants to remind people of the kinds of charges that can be filed when someone is caught destroying federal property like a mailbox. If convicted, suspects can pay big bucks and serve jail time.

Police are still investigating.
