READING, Pa. — Someone apparently trying to start the year off with a clear conscience prompted a bomb squad to report to a post office where workers discovered a suspicious package addressed to police.
Northern Berks Regional Police Chief Scott Eaken said the package turned out to contain electronics and other items stolen from cars in the area last summer.
Suspicions were raised by wires visible inside the box left in the Blandon Post Office lobby Tuesday morning.
Eaken said postal workers were also suspicious because the box was labeled “return to Northern Berks” but had no delivery or return address.
Police suspect the person who dropped off the package was suffering from a guilty conscience.
Eaken said officers took fingerprints from some of the items and will continue to investigate.
