Six-year-old finds a piece of meat in an envelope in the mailbox

LOCKPORT – Niagara County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in the 4900 block of Sunset Drive after an envelope, containing meat in a refrigerator bag, was found in the mailbox on Tuesday.

The homeowners said their six-year-old granddaughter found the envelope in the mailbox at about 9 a.m. on Tuesday. The front of the envelope said, “To the best sister-in-law in the world [with a smiley face.] From Bob.” Inside the envelope was a baggie containing a partial piece of meat or poultry.

The homeowners told deputies that they don’t know anyone named Bob and have no issues with family members. They don’t believe the envelope was meant for them and called the Niagara County Sheriff Department regarding the suspicious package.
