Mailbox Bombs

Getting the mail just got a little scary for some after numerous bottle bombs were found in capital city mailboxes.

Postal officials say between April 3 and April 21, several improvised explosive devices, or "bottle bombs," have been found in mailboxes in northeast Tallahassee.

Officials say the devices have the capability of causing severe injury. The Tallahassee Police Department say so far at least two of the bombs have exploded.

Authorities say the bombs have been localized to the Thomasville Road and Centerville areas.

The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for any information leading to arrest and conviction of the persons responsible for the bottle bombs. You are asked to call 850-216-4212 if you have any information.
