More than 24 windows smashed at Florida Post Office overnight
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – More than two dozen windows are busted at the United States Post Office Monument Station on Fort Caroline Road and shards of glass remain scattered outside the building.
A glass door is broken large enough where someone could fit inside.
After breaking it, it looks like the vandals went inside the building because glass is also shattered from the inside. It’s unknown if they got away with anything.
The door was taped off and a sign directs customers to two other locations for post office business, but there were no police officers guarding the unsecured building.
A contractor was seen measuring the windows and told News4Jax crews will be out at some point today placing plywood to replace the busted windows.
JSO records show officers responded to the post office for vandalism at 8 p.m. Wednesday.
A USPS inspector sent News4Jax this statement: “The United States Postal Inspection Service responded to, and is conducting an investigation into the vandalism incident that occurred at the USPS-Monument Station on the evening of December 30, 2020,” said Adam Schaefer, United States Postal Inspector. “We would ask that anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information regarding any potential suspects, contact the United States Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455.”
