SNOW HILL, Md. (AP/WBOC)- Five volunteer firefighters charged with destroying mailboxes in Worcester County by throwing watermelons at them will pay a fine and court costs.

A Worcester County District Court judge on Tuesday gave the men unsupervised probation before judgment. That means if the men stay out of trouble for a specified period of time the conviction will disappear from their records. Each man also was ordered to pay a $300 fine and court costs.

Police say the men were caught throwing the watermelons in the town of Bishopville around 1 a.m. on Oct. 4. They allegedly damaged 14 mailboxes, a trash can and a sign for a church parsonage. The total damage was estimated at $2,250. The men are members of the Lewes Fire Department and the Roxana Volunteer Fire Company, according to the websites of the fire departments.

Two of the men involved told WBOC that the group replaced the damaged mailboxes on their own accord a day after the incident occurred.
