Suspicious packages that contain the same kind of item have been delivered to homes in Quincy, Massachusetts this month.
The address on the package is valid, but the name on the package belongs to an unknown resident. A person will then arrive at the resident to pick up the package. In all three cases, the original recipients of the package were home to accept it, which thwarted attempts to take them, according to police.
All of the packages contained a cell phone.
Quincy police say that the packages began to appear at homes between 11 a.m. and noon since the beginning of June. The first incident was reported in the Center Street area on June 2, and two more in the Robertson Street Area on June 8 and June 13.
Police say the incidents are under investigation and residents are urged to call police immediately if they receive a suspicious package. If you have any information that may assist in this investigation, please contact our Detective Bureau at 617.745.5764.
