Moses Lake Mailbox DESTROYED By I.E.D.

GRANT COUNTY PRESS RELEASE: Grant County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating an incident where an improvised explosive device destroyed a mailbox near Moses Lake.

Around 1 p.m. Sunday April 3, deputies were called to the 7400 block of Road K.7-NE, about two miles east of Moses Lake. A citizen had reported her mailbox had been destroyed, possibly the night before. Evidence collected at the scene leads deputies to believe an IED, possibly a pipe bomb, was used.

Deputies called the Richland Police Department Bomb Squad, whose members checked other mailboxes in the area. No other devices were found, and no other similar incidents have been reported recently.

It is unclear if the owners of the mailbox or anyone else was targeted, or if this incident was a random act. The investigation continues.

"I'm grateful nobody was hurt by the detonation of this device," said Sheriff Tom Jones. "Since we don't know if this was a random event or if someone was indeed targeted, citizens should be cautious when opening their mailboxes."

Anyone with information about this or any other criminal activity should call the Sheriff's Office at 509-754-2011 ext. 468 or email an anonymous tip to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us <mailto:crimetips@co.grant.wa.us> .
