Fourth of July mailbox bomber could be 9-year-old boy 

Neither rain, nor snow, nor fireworks?

The U.S. Postal Service was the victim of a child prankster who set off fireworks in one of its mailboxes on the Fourth of July, police said.

The budding reprobate, described as being between 9 and 12 years old, stuffed the fireworks into a mailbox at Hayes and Buchanan streets around 4:30 p.m., setting the mail inside on fire, police said.

He fled the scene and has not been apprehended.
