GRANGER, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) – The FBI is investigating a bizarre pattern of mailbox bombings in the town of Granger, Indiana.

Last week, police receive several reports of what they call "bottle bombs" detonating in mail boxes. One of the targets was 2ND District Congressional candidate, Brendan Mullen. Mullen did not file a report , and the campaign hopes it's a random teenage prank.

Last Tuesday, three other mailboxes exploded in the neighborhood. No injuries reported.
