CORNISH, NH–Cornish Police Chief Doug Hackett announced early Thursday afternoon that the Cornish and Claremont Police Departments, through a joint investigation, have identified the individuals allegedly involved in the string of mailbox damages in both towns on Tuesday night. According to Hackett, “The suspects are an 18-year-old male and a 16-year-old juvenile. This investigation is continuing, and charges are expected in the near future.”
Hackett reported on Wednesday that officers had examined the
area of Hewitt Rd. in Claremont and Tandy Brook Rd. in Cornish and
discovered at least five mailboxes that had been damaged by what
appeared to be an improvised explosive device, possibly contained in a
soda bottle. The investigation initially came about following a call
from a Cornish resident that his mailbox had been “blown up”.

Doug Hackett at Doug.Hackett@CornishNH.net or (603) 543-0535 or
