Bomb Destroys Mailbox in Maryland

The Washington Post

Maryland fire marshals are investigating a soda-bottle bomb that destroyed a Charles County mailbox late Sunday.

Authorities said the chemical bomb was contained in a two-liter soda bottle and apparently detonated about 10:30 p.m. in the 5300 block of Doris Drive in Waldorf. Neighbors heard the blast but did not realize its effects until yesterday morning, said Deputy State Fire Marshal W. Faron Taylor.

Taylor said investigators do not think the incident was connected to the string of mailbox bombings in the Midwest.
