Why would peo­ple in cen­tral Al­berta anony­mously mail sex­u­ally of­fen­sive ma­te­rial to some­one they do not know? That is a ques­tion Red Deer RCMP are try­ing to an­swer. Moun­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing af­ter a man re­ceived the of­fen­sive ma­te­rial ev­ery De­cem­ber for the past three years. Po­lice say they have sur­veil­lance cam­era images of two sus­pects, pic­tured, — a man and a woman — mail­ing the ma­te­rial at a gro­cery store post of­fice Dec. 8. The man who re­ceived the mail says he doesn’t know the sus­pects or why he would be tar­geted. RCMP say the sus­pects may have mailed sim­i­lar ma­te­rial to other peo­ple as well. “The ac­tion of re­peat­edly mail­ing of­fen­sive ma­te­rial to some­one falls un­der the Crim­i­nal Code def­i­ni­tion of crim­i­nal ha­rass­ment,” RCMP said Fri­day in a re­lease.
