Reward For Mailbox Vandalism Arrest Doubled — Now $1000

Blank White Mailbox 2Sheldon, Iowa — The reward for information leading to the arrest of whomever is responsible for the Sheldon area mailbox vandalism incidents — has been doubled.

The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office has been contacted by a group who is offering to match the original $500 United States Postal Service reward with an additional $500 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the perpetrator or perpetrators. The reward is a collective reward pledged by several anonymous citizens.

The original incident was reported on Saturday, September 21, when the Sioux County Sheriff’s Office investigated 26 incidents of vandalism to mailboxes, which occurred in the rural northeast area of Sioux County, near Sheldon, likely the night before.

Some boxes were struck with a blunt instrument, some were pushed over, and some were forcibly removed from their post and were thrown onto the roadway.

Several similar incidents are being investigated in Lyon and O’Brien Counties.
