Calls began coming in Saturday morning about mailboxes in northwest Minot being damaged overnight, confirmed the Minot Police Department.
"I think I accounted for 18," said Sgt. Larry Haug of the department. He said that the vandalized mailboxes, which appear to have been hit by some kind of object, were primarily in the vicinity of 27th Street Northwest, north of the area of Fourth Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.
The police do not believe that mail was stolen or touched, which would be a federal offense.
