ATF and FBI Investigate Fire Involving Fed Prosecutor’s Mailbox

There are mailboxes. And then there are mailboxes that belong to federal prosecutors.

As for the latter, those mailboxes get special attention.

The Palm Beach Post reports that the FBI, ATF and U.S. Postal Service are investigating a firework on Sunday that triggered a fire in the mailbox of an assistant U.S. Attorney in Caloosa, Fla., just north of Palm Beach Gardens.

The paper reported that Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department sent out a bomb squad to investigate and the FBI and ATF have now joined in.

Still, it may be nothing more than a prank.

“It looks more like malicious mischief at this time,” ATF spokesman Carlos Baixauli told the paper. “We don’t know if the people knew she was a U.S. Attorney, or if it was somebody having fun trying to blow up a mailbox. Right now we have nothing to believe it was intended for her.”
