Two Men Caught For Alleged Mailbox Vandalism

LINCOLN -- At least four mailboxes and items inside were damaged or destroyed by two men early Thursday morning.  Most of the reports came from the 37th and High neighborhood.  One neighbor saw two men, later identified as 24-year-old Trevor Thayer and 18-year-old Hunter Pritchard, throwing mail and books into the air.  Lincoln Police Officer Katie Flood says Pritchard was caught by an officer near 33rd and Van Dorn, while Thayer was later arrested at his home.  A witness apparently saw both men throwing books, paper and mail into the air.  Flood says a community library box at 38th and Sheridan was also damaged and the books inside were destroyed, too.  Both face larceny and criminal mischief charges, while Pritchard was also cited for resisting arrest and carrying a concealed weapon.  Flood says Pritchard apparently had a five-inch knife inside his coat.
