ALBQUERQUE (KRQE) – Some Albuquerque residents got quite the scare Saturday after their mailboxes blew-up.

APD says they got three calls, all in the northeast heights, of people’s mailboxes being blown apart.

There was a fourth case, in the same area, in the county.

When detectives arrived they found it someone had lit fireworks and tossed them into the boxes.

Police say they do have a suspect but that person has not been arrested or identified.
