Cayman News Service(CNS): The police are appealing for witnesses to a break-in at the West Bay Post Office that happened sometime overnight on Wednesday/Thursday of this week. Officers responded to the report at the district post office Thursday morning, where they found three post office boxes were damaged and emptied and attempts appear to have been made to open two other boxes. 

Envelopes that could have contained cheques, bank statements and other documents were discovered at the rear of the post office. Anyone with information is asked to call the West Bay Police Station at 949-3999 or Crime Stoppers at 800-8477 (TIPS).

    We wonder what contraband could be mailed by the gangs these days….LSD, cocaine, heroin, meth, ecstasy, and crack are being replaced with hundreds of New Psychoactive Substances like the alpha-PVP “flakka”, aka “gravel”, aka “$5 insanity” (the second generation bath-salt) emanating by mail worldwide from thousands of labs in Guandong China. It is a global problem. DEA has added it to the list of Schedule I drugs. EMS in Broward County, Florida have seen as many as 20 flakka victims a night. These very dangerous and highly addictive synthetics are being blended into low quality cut drugs to increase potency and addictive properties and most of it is being delivered by regular mail. Episodes of people stripping nude in broad daylight and jumping into the water downtown are a good indicator that drugs like this are already here. HM Customs should be scrutinizing any mail coming from China – and in particular any boxes purporting to be “cleaner products” or “free samples” or “aquarium gravel”.

    Police are asking whether anyone sent any important post to a West Bay PO box over 6 weeks ago. Anything sent since then is not a problem as it will still be sitting in a post office to be delivered.

    I wonder if the police dusted the envelopes for finger prints, they should have a huge data base by now, did the police notify the victims to contact the senders of the checks that their p.o boxes had been robbed. We need to help stop the crime.
