Neighborhood Vandalism Suspects Come Forward

Police say two young men have admitted responsibility for GJ mailbox incidents

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. - Police say two people have come forward, identifying themselves as those responsible for recent vandalism in a Grand Junction neighborhood.

Authorities over the weekend took several reports of damaged mailboxes in the general area of North 17th Circle.  Damage is estimated at about $350.

The incident prompted anger and concern among community members, some of whom said they didn't feel safe.

A neighborhood resident had a home surveillance camera that showed three men walking on a sidewalk, with two of them kicking down a mailbox while the third recorded the incident.

According to a police summons, Cole Kennedy and Diego Navarro, both 19, recently went to the police substation at Colorado Mesa University and identified themselves as the people in the video.

Police say the two men were very cooperative and apologetic.  Both were cited and released for criminal mischief, a Class 2 misdemeanor.
