A Norris City couple had their mailbox destroyed over the weekend according to White County Sheriff’s reports. It was nearly 10:30pm Saturday night when Jimmy and Betty Gwaltney of rural White County notified dispatch of the incident which they believed had just happened. Mrs. Gwaltney told the responding officer she’d heard a loud noise and saw a vehicle by the mailbox and someone picking up some pieces before driving off. The report indicates the Gwaltneys were driving around looking for the vehicle when they phoned in the report and said they located a vehicle with front end damage at a residence. The officer responded and after surveying the vehicle in question, said he was confident it wasn’t involved. Mr. Gwaltney then alerted the deputy he’d found a few pieces from the vehicle that hit the mailbox. The investigation continues.
