Mail carrier decides police department doesn't exist
Clinton Township Police Lieutenant Anthony Pfeifer has a mystery on his hands.
He said for weeks the police got no mail, then one day they received all their mail- with other people's mail mixed in.
"This belongs to an address on Cleveland Avenue- 3669," he said sorting through a pile of letters. "Our address is 3820."
The lieutenant says the department has had delivery problems in the past, even before construction began on the new headquarters.
But when the community newsletter was returned as *undeliverable, he said that was the last straw.
"We always send one to us to make sure it got out," he said.
"This one came back and it says undeliverable. And it has our address right on it. And the return address is here and the same address here and it was undeliverable. But they found the right address to send it back to."
That's when he decided to call ABC6 On Your Side.
"I've been following your story about the mail and the problems that have been going on," Pfeifer said.
"I just didn't know what to do."
We suggested he file complaints with the post office public affairs department and Congressman Steve Stivers, which he did.
We also reached out to US Postal Spokesman David Van Allen, who sent us an email statement.
"The majority of the issues you raise appear to have occurred due to the construction areas around the police station and its temporary relocation, specifically where the entrance is dug up with a do not enter sign. Management visited the site and spoke to the police department, apologized for the confusion, and has communicated to the local team the correct location to deliver the mail."
The lieutenant said he was happy with the results.
"I got some answers. Hopefully we won't have this issue again."
