WORCESTER CO., Md. - Police say they arrested five Delaware firefighters, after they allegedly smashed mailboxes in Bishopville.

The Worcester County Sheriff's Office says they got a call about several people riding around in a dark colored truck, riding around Bishopville, hitting mailboxes. Both Deputies from the Sheriff's Office, and Troopers from Maryland State Police stopped a truck on Saint Martin's Neck Road near Route 90, and found four people in the bed of the truck, along with 29 watermelons, plus the driver.

A Deputy and a Trooper stayed with the truck, while a second Deputy traveled the roads of Bishopville to check for damages, and reportedly found 14 mailboxes, 1 Waste Management trash can, and 1 sign for church parsonage damaged.

An investigation showed that Stewart Pryor, 28, of Millsboro, DE; Dylan Sharp, 19, of Milton, DE; Franklin Martin, 23, of Milton, DE; Sean MaGee, 23, of Selbyville, DE, and Addison Hill-Bittner, 22 of Rehoboth, DE were driving on Bishopville Road and Saint Martin's Neck Road throwing watermelons at mailboxes, trying to destroy them.

Police say the five men all identified themselves as Sussex County, Delaware firefighters. Police say they arrested all 5 men, and charged them with malicious destruction of property. They are each now reportedly awaiting trial on this matter.
