On 19 June 2022, Orange County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a Wedgefield residence after unknown suspects detonated an explosive device in the mailbox. Surveillance footage captured a car driving off before the explosion. No further device details have been released, but the homeowners observed an orange powder lining the inside of the mailbox after the explosion. Two neighboring homes experienced similar incidents the same night after devices functioned outside a neighbor’s window and another in a dumpster. The investigation is ongoing.
