Blown up letterbox

Blown up letterbox

Around 10.30pm last night (Monday 4 Feb) we heard a loud bang outside only to discover our letter box has been blown up with a large firecracker.  It blew it most of it to bits, even though it’s made from stone

Random Act or planned?  Surely if it was a group of kids they could find something better to do before going back to school.  Anyone in Stirling seen or heard anything last night?  Is usually a quiet suburb, but in any case it’s been reported to crime stoppers….


UPDATE 06/01/13 10:09: Now with a picture of the cracker:

That’s really interesting. For a firework that small to be able to shatter concrete and lift and move several kilograms of stone is unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

The shattered edges of the container where it burst look very clean, without the blackening and charring I’d expect from a charge of black powder detonated inside cardboard. I wonder if it was black powder, or some other explosive.

Anyway, it is what it is. You learn something new every day.

No-one ever wants more than a reasonable amount of junk.

Keep Calm and Chronicle.
