The Rockingham County Sheriff's Office is investigating the destruction of two mailboxes by apparent homemade explosive devices.
The News & Record reports (http://bit.ly/2oI3dpN ) a news release from the sheriff's office says deputies responded to similar calls in Eden about 9:45 p.m. Sunday and Stoneville about 11 p.m. Deputies believe each mailbox was destroyed by what appears to be homemade explosive devices.
It's unclear why those locations were selected or if the two cases are connected.
Sheriff's detectives collected evidence of the explosive devices from each location. The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has joined the investigation.
