Two Arrested For Exploding Mailbox In Cambridge

Posted: Updated:

DORCHESTER CO., Md. - Two suspects behind an exploding mailbox have been charged in Dorchester County.

According to reports, Evan Scheckler, 18, and a 16-year-old male juvenile were responsible for the destruction of the mailbox at 112 Linthicum Drive in Cambridge. The owner of the home reportedly found the destruction at 6:40 AM on April 24th.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office and Dorchester County Sheriff's Office say the two teenagers were charged with multiple counts involving the Manufacture, Possession and Use of a Destructive Device and Malicious Destruction of Property. Scheckler was reportedly transported to the Dorchester County Detention Center and is being held on $10,000 bond. The 16-year-old male was reportedly released to the custody of his parents pending actions by the Dorchester County Department of Juvenile Services.

Officials are reminding everyone that these devices are considered Improvised Explosive Devices, which are a felony charge and can result in penalties of up to 25 year imprisonment and/or $250,000 in fines per device. The construction of these types of devices is reportedly often misrepresented as fun, however the serious and destructive nature of these devices can cause loss of vision, respiratory damage, loss of fingers, hands and possibly death.
