The Eudora Police have identified four juvenile suspects in connection with three mailbox bombs made with liquid Drano and aluminum foil.
The suspects are 15- and 16-year-old males, and they have not yet been taken into custody.
The first of the three bombs, which were in two-liter soda bottles, was discovered by a mail carrier Thursday afternoon at a home on the corner of 14th and Fir streets. The Olathe bomb squad detonated it.
On Friday morning, residents in the 1300 block of Acorn Street notified police of an explosion that had occurred between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Thursday. Members of the Eudora Police Department found the remnants of another Drano bomb in a mailbox there.
A mail carrier found another detonated Drano bomb in a mailbox near the corner of Winchester Road and 10th Street, just outside the Eudora city limits.
None of the residents were home during any of the three incidents.
Eudora Police Chief Greg Dahlem met Friday with officials from the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. The postal service offered a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the explosives.
The Eudora Police Department, Douglas County Sheriff’s Department and U.S. Postal Inspection Service are continuing the investigation. Anyone with information on the incidents is asked to contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455 or the Eudora Police Department at 542-3121.
