Officials investigating after mailboxes vandalized in Butler Twp.

BUTLER TWP., Ohio (WDTN) – The Butler Township Police Department is investigating after dozens of residents reported their mailboxes were damaged Saturday morning.

Officials say early in the morning at least 25 mailboxes were damaged on four different roads.

A witness reported hearing “loud bangs” and saw two people walking away from the scene.

Officials believe the suspects are two boys between 12 to 17 years old. Officials found several beer cans and juice jugs they believe the suspects were carrying.

The suspects are facing possible felony charges. Butler Township Police Chief John Porter says they will likely face misdemeanor charges because they’re juveniles. He says if they turn themselves in they’ll likely face lesser punishment.

2 NEWS asked if this incident is connected to the one in Springboro last weekend where a hundred mailboxes were smashed. Porter believes both cases are isolated.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP.
