More than 24 windows broke at Jacksonville Post Office overnight

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. More than two dozen windows were smashed at the United States Post Office Monument Station on Fort Caroline Road and glass shards remain scattered outside the building.

A glass door is broken big enough for someone to fit in.

After it was broken, it looks like the vandals entered the building because glass is also broken from inside. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.

The door was plastered and a sign led customers to two other locations for post offices, but there were no police officers guarding the uninsured building.

A contractor was seen measuring the windows and told News4Jax crew would be out at some point today to install plywood to replace the cracked windows.

According to JSO officials, officers responded to the post office on Wednesday at 8pm due to vandalism.

A USPS inspector sent News4Jax this statement: “The U.S. Postal Inspectorate has responded to and is investigating the vandalism incident that occurred on the evening of December 30, 2020 at the USPS Monument Station,” Adam Schaefer told United. State Post Inspector. “We would like to ask anyone who has witnessed the incident or has information on possible suspects to contact the United States Postal Inspection Service at 877-876-2455.”

Schaefer told News4Jax that they currently have no surveillance video to share.

News4Jax contacted JSO for more information.
