 HAMPTON (KWWL) -- Two men face charges in a mailbox bombing earlier this month in Hampton.

 Police say 18-year-old Ryan Huffman and 19-year-old Zachary Bale, both of Hampton, were arrested on suspicion of reckless use of a fire or explosives.

An explosive device went off Jan. 7 in a residential mailbox. Police say Bale had possession of explosive material that matched evidence from the scene.

The men each face up to a year in jail and fines of $1,500 if convicted.
