USA Hospital Dept Bottles – Theft Report!


USA Hospital Dept Bottles Theft Report!

27 January 2014

Collectors, PLEASE be on the lookout for these bottles below. They were in a package reportedly stolen from what I now have learned is an unsecured USPS sorting facility. It is likely that the thief will simply break the bottles (hoping for a box full of electronics) but they did have price tags so perhaps they will come to market. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Sent two boxes express – only one made it to the destination. Driver said “saw two boxes when I came in – only one when I was packing the truck.” Never would have considered the theft angle but the postmaster from destination has made it clear this is what he believes has happened. Unclear if other boxes were stolen that day but we were told “we thought this problem (theft) had been resolved.” Frustrating.
