Wonder if the recipients were chosen at random or if there's a connection between them all...or perhaps their mailboxes were most accessible and the shape most suitable? Would be nice to get the police department's take on this.

I can tell you that the mailbox on N Lemon was metal and was blown into many pieces, some of which blew across and down the street. This was the darkest part of our street so perhaps that is why they chose that mailbox. I hope the police are taking this seriously because there was a couple walking down our street with their dog and they were only a few houses away when the explosion happened.

How terrifying! It's clear that injuries can happen when someone pulls this type of "prank"- which is actually a crime & can have serious ramifications. NLemon - thanks for adding the info. I've done a lot of walking in that area & since it's summer, there are a lot of people about.
