Jamieson res­i­dents re­ceive threat­en­ing mail - who is he?

Mansfield Courier - - News -

THREAT­EN­ING let­ters have been sent to Jamieson res­i­dents, with po­lice now call­ing for peo­ple to iden­tify a man sus­pected of be­ing in­volved in the case.

Aged in his mid-60s and of solid build, the man was caught on CCTV footage de­liv­er­ing let­ters at the Jamieson Post Of­fice.

It is un­der­stand those same let­ters were sent to a ran­dom se­lec­tion of lo­cal res­i­dents, all with threat­en­ing con­tent.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors have been told the let­ters were de­liv­ered be­tween Au­gust 16 and Septem­ber 25.

“A gen­tle­man has posted some let­ters into a post box here, and they have been ad­dressed to cer­tain peo­ple,” Mandy Riedel, from the Jamieson Post Of­fice, said.

“He is not, to our knowl­edge, a lo­cal - but he fre­quents this area.

“It’s very strange; pre med­i­tated, and pretty sad.”

Ms Riedel said the mat­ter was ini­tially re­ported to lo­cal po­lice, who then came to the post of­fice with a war­rant for their CCTV footage.

From there, an im­age of the man sus­pected of be­ing in­volved was iden­ti­fied and later re­leased to the broader public.

De­scribed as be­ing ap­prox­i­mately 175-180cm tall, par­tially bald with white hair and a white beard, the man was wear­ing a white T-shirt, grey shorts and boots at the time the let­ters were posted.

He may pos­si­bly be driv­ing a light blue Toy­ota Land­Cruiser 100 se­ries sta­tion wagon.

In­ves­ti­ga­tors are urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact Crime Stop­pers on 1800 333 000 or sub­mit a confidenti­al crime re­port at www. crimestop­persvic.com.au.

DO YOU KNOW THIS MAN: It is be­lieved this man sent threat­en­ing let­ters to Jamieson res­i­dents, with lo­cal po­lice call­ing for in­for­ma­tion.
