FIRST ON 3: Anonymous tip lands alleged mailbox vandal behind bars


BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) -- The Brunswick County Sheriff's Office arrested a man, who they say damaged seventeen mailboxes, in Supply last week.

Christian Daniel Carlisle, 19, of Holden Beach, is charged with 17 counts of injury to real property, one account of consuming alcohol by a 19/20-year-old and one count of unauthorized opening of a sealed letter.

Carlisle is currently in the Brunswick County Detention Facility under a $7,500 secure bond.

According to Brunswick County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Emily Flax, an anonymous tip led to the arrest.

that should get the man at

that should get the man at least 10 years to think about his vandalizing peoples personal property, that is definitely federal, and 17 boxes rules out a spur of the moment rage, definitely intentional.


So, a 19 year old needs to spend 10 years in jail at tax payer expense!
How about he pays for damage and labor to replace boxes.
how about meaningful community service!
People are out of prison in less time for murder!

Federal charges

Hopefully the local postal inspector will get involved and put federal charges on this idiot.

That's what I was thinking.

That's what I was thinking. I believe vandalizing a mailbox is a federal offense. Opening someone else's mail without permission certainly is. The little punk should have to buy and replace (personally) every boz he damaged. Such stupid idiotic nonsense.

As I see it he's only 19 and never been in trouble before...Maybe his time in jail will wake him up.... I think everyone deserves a second chance...

he got his second chance, then he got 15 more, now it is time to put him behind bars for a few years.
