Police investigate string of vandalisms

Trent Neeman said his wife heard something alarming early Sunday morning.

"She heard a noise outside, a big smack," he said.

Neeman later found that noise came from something hitting their mailbox, sending it off its post.

"The mailbox vandalisms were all committed most likely by a baseball bat all in the area roughly from 33rd to 14th street south to Yankee Hill," Officer Katie Flood said.

Police reported only the Neeman family's mailbox vandalized on Tipperary Trail, but there were others also hit who didn't go to police.

"We had a family friend get nailed up the street. The next night, these two right here got hit," Neeman said.

Some mailboxes only suffered minor dents, but others weren't so lucky. The Neeman's have to replace their mailbox completely.

A few miles away on Briar Rosa Drive, four mailboxes in a row were hit. One had to have everything from the box to the post redone.

Seven more reported mailboxes between southeast and southwest Lincoln were hit as well.

Neeman said he hopes the authorities can put a stop to this.

"Whoever did this needs to get caught," he said.

 Police also say six cars parked on O'Malley Drive were shot with a BB gun, but they're not sure if these cases are related.
