Explosive Device Destroys Mailboxes In Teller County

On 4 January 2024, at about 5:34 pm, Teller County Sheriff’s Office Deputies responded to a report of an explosion in a mail parcel box at the intersection of County Road 11 and High Chateau Road.

Upon arrival deputies discovered a bank of four mailboxes used to contain oversized parcels destroyed. A TCSO Detective assisted by the Metro Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Unit investigated the explosion and that investigation is ongoing.

It is not believed that the explosion was associated with a parcel delivery.

United States Postal Inspectors have been notified and briefed on the event.

There is no danger to the community currently, however: community members are reminded to remain vigilant for suspicious activity in and around mailbox banks and report such activity immediately to the Teller County Sheriff’s Office.
