Second mailbox damaged by gunshot in Augusta Township neighborhood
A second mailbox was damaged by an apparent gunshot in the same Augusta Township neighborhood where a similar incident occurred last week, police said.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating the report of a mailbox damaged by gunshot in the 13000 block of Bunton Road in Augusta Township. Deputies were called to the same block on Jan. 9 for a report of a mailbox being destroyed by a shotgun blast.
Sheriff’s office spokesman Derrick Jackson said it’s unknown if the two incidents are related, and deputies are still investigating the incident. The mailboxes that have been destroyed are at two different homes on the block, Jackson said.
On Jan. 9, a 40-year-old man heard several shotgun blasts near the road, according to police. The mailbox was ruined, but no one was injured and no suspects were found.
Police are still looking for information on these incidents and encourage anyone with information to call the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office anonymous tip line at 734-973-7711.
