Police in Goffstown and Dunbarton, New Hampshire are investigating five explosive devices, several of which were detonated in trash cans and a mailbox.

Reports of the first explosion came in Tuesday night. As police were investigating that device detonated in a trash can on Gorham Pond Road, a second explosion went off nearby — also in a trash can.

Dunbarton police are also investigating an explosion.
