One thing more unwelcome than a bill in one's mailbox may be a firecracker, as a string of Menlo Park residents discovered last week.
A day earlier, a mailbox blew up on San Mateo Drive around 9 p.m. Police suspect fireworks caused all three explosions.
So far no one's been hurt by the vandalism. Suspect information remains scarce, although a witness spotted a man leaning out of the passenger side window of the red pickup truck shortly before the Cotton Street incident.
Police ask anyone with information about the crimes to call Menlo Park police at 650-330-6300 or the anonymous tip line at 650-330-6395.
