Postmaster General & CEO Megan J. Brennan Statement on Suspicious Packages Arrest

Oct. 26, 2018

“Over the past week, the men and women of the United States Postal Service and the Postal Inspection Service responded quickly and effectively to the threat of suspicious packages in the mail stream.

We worked closely with local and federal law enforcement partners to protect our employees, customers and the American public, and to speed the investigation and apprehension of the alleged perpetrator.

We are especially pleased that there have been no injuries. This is a testament to the hard work of our postal employees who were vigilant and aided in these investigations.

While there has been an arrest, we must remain alert and continue to follow our established suspicious mail protocols. We remain focused on our mission to keep the mail safe and secure for everyone.”
