An Indiana town is on edge as police search for whoever is responsible for a string of recent explosions.

FOX News Radio’s Chris Hoenig has the story:

Audio clip:

Someone is using soda bottles to blow up mailboxes in Westfield, Indiana.

(Sgt. Dine) “A plastic bottle filled with household chemicals and some tin foil.  It then creates a chemical reaction.  The device will eventually explode.”

At least four mailboxes have been destroyed since Friday, including Dwight Watkins’s.

(Watkins) “It blew the back out of it and the door off of it, and it just opened it up.”

Watkins was unhurt, and Westfield Police Sgt. Robert Dine says he – and the bomber – are both lucky.

(Sgt. Dine) “Face damage, respiratory problems, you could lose a finger, hand.  They’re pretty serious.”

Police are warning residents not to touch any bottles with liquid in them.
