Gray Responds to Fiery Postal Package

On January 7 the Metropolitan Police Department responded to a flaring package at the United States Postal Service on V Street NE. Two similar packages had been opened the day before in Maryland state government facilities. No one was injured; however, the facility was evacuated out of caution. Mayor Vincent Gray later stated, “Whoever committed this cowardly, dastardly act must be brought to justice quickly. Gray commended both the postal workers and the law enforcement units for their quick action and collaboration.

Mailrooms across DC were then shut down to receive a full inspection by officials. Later the Protective Services Police Department requested that all suspicious packages and activity be reported immediately to officials due to recent events.
