On Friday, four teens have admitted to the vandalism of numerous mailboxes, road signs, and a vehicle in western Kewaunee County from Tuesday night. The original theory had been that most of the damage was done with a blunt object, however, the investigation has revealed that a firearm may have been involved as well. While the investigation remains open, Kewaunee County officials believe that all suspects have been apprehended. Sheriff Matt Joski says that due to the destruction being to US Postal Service property, this is a unique situation, compared to other vandalism cases.
Joski adds than an official press release earlier in the week had the reported number of mailboxes damaged in connection to this case estimated near 50, however further investigation revealed that previous damage occurred in some of the reports. Joski also says he wants to thank everyone involved from dispatchers, investigators and the young adults from the community who came forward with information.
