A week full of drama & suspicious articles at the Perth Mail Centre

Home / A week full of drama & suspicious articles at the Perth Mail Centre

This week has been full drama and suspicious packages for Australia Post and the Australia Federal Police. On Wednesday afternoon we saw the Perth mail centre evacuate because of the suspicious contents of a letter.

 

The contents of this letter was said to be found purely by accident when a sorting machine opened the letter exposing the powder contained inside.

 

In total five letters were discovered, three at the Perth Mail Centre, one at the Treasurer office and the fifth at Premier Colin Barnett’s office. The contents of the letters were later confirmed as flour.

 

Police Commissioner Karl O’Callaghan said this morning that the letters appeared to have the same author and did not appear to have been spurred by any particular government policy.

 

Mr O’Callaghan said police were taking the incident seriously, even though the powder was innocuous.

Adding a yellow sticky note has been seen to improve responses by 10%. You can personalise them and place them on any part of the package.

One technique is to put a yellow sticky note on a page that seems to be ripped out of a magazine. Using a handwritten font on these improves engagement.
