COLUMBIA — Boone County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the Meadowbrook West subdivision for a report of opened and vandalized mailboxes around 9 p.m. Thursday. Upon investigating the area, deputies received additional calls reporting opened mail. 

The affected streets include Salem Drive, Knox Drive, Kendallwood Road, Grandview Circle, Atlas Court, Hastings Court, Baxter Court and Hartford Road.

"It is yet to be determined if any mail was taken," said Maj. Tom Reddin of the Sheriff's Department. Reddin said it was up to the owners in the subdivision to report if mail had gone missing.

The number of reports made is unknown at this time, but Reddin said virtually every household was affected in the subdivision, leaving mailboxes vandalized and broken with mail strewn about the streets.
