Vandals broke into a mailbox and scattered mail about late Sunday in the North End.

Tacoma police were notified of the incident shortly after 11 p.m., spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

According to the report, someone pried open a door on one of three blue mailboxes located at North 27th and Adams streets. Officers found mail on the ground and still in the box, Fulghum said.

The officers collected the mail and placed it in one of the secured drop-off boxes. The department then notified the U.S. Post Office.
