GREENFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Greenfield police says a Dunkin’ Donuts receipt led investigators to two young men who allegedly stole nearly 30 mailboxes and tossed them onto an interstate highway.

The Recorder (https://bit.ly/1hHNZv6 ) reports that 19-year-old Sean Bittner and 18-year-old Joshua Acus pleaded not guilty Tuesday to multiple larceny and vandalism charges. They were released on personal recognizance.

Officers responded to an overpass over Interstate 91 at about 4 a.m. Monday and found 29 mailboxes stolen from homes in Greenfield and Deerfield on the highway below.

It appears as though some had been flattened by vehicles, but police did not receive reports of accidents or injuries.

The suspects were gone by the time police arrived, but officers found a Dunkin’ Donuts receipt among the wreckage. It turns out the suspects had gone there earlier.
