Jamaican Food Items Goes Missing

A Bronx resident is still baffled about what might have happened to food items sent to a relative in Temple Texas. The food items packed in a USPS box was sent off from the Hillside Station in Bronx on February 18, 2015 for Temple Texas with an expected delivery date of Tuesday February 24th. The package arrived at its destination on Saturday February 28 in the condition seen below.

If you notice one side of the box is missing and held together with tape. This could have been the result of poor handling which of course is not acceptable since the sender made it clear there was perishable item in the box, specifically…a cake. However that was not the worst part, the package arrived with half of the food items missing. Below is a list of the items sent and the items that the recipient received.

ITEMS SENT
1 tin (2.2LBS) Tastee Cheese
2 Doz Assorted Lasco

1 pk thyme

Despite reports the sender has been unable to get any answer about the missing items or why the package arrived with other items packed in it that were not a part of the original package.

Below is the facilities that the package passed through en route to its destination.

This package did not go through every post office in the entire United States. Someone somewhere in one of these facilities must know something about what happened to the package and which facility received it in a damaged condition. Forty eight dollars was spent to ship this package. The items were not insured but surely there should be some accountability. This is unacceptable and raises concern about using the US Postal System.
Do you thing this was an accident and the items got misplaced or it was deliberate theft. You be the judge.
