Man Reports Own Order As "Suspicious Package"

Police blotters can be depressing, but sometimes they’re just wonderfully amusing. Take, for example, the plight of a mercifully unnamed individual who reported his own order as a suspicious package.

We join our hero after he has just called the police to report that he saw an unidentified person leave a package at his house.

From the Hudson Hub Times:

The officer said he could see the package was clearly labeled with the logo and asked the man if he had ordered anything from the firm recently.

The man reportedly said “Why yes, I did.”

The officer told the resident his order had arrived. The resident then said he was comfortable opening the box. The officer then left the scene, according to the report.
