You have likely heard the news reports about the suspicious package that was dropped off on December 1, 2017, at a Potsdam pharmacy located directly adjacent to Potsdam's Christmas market. Authorities now believe that this was a blackmail attempt targeting our company. The police have already assigned a special commission to investigate the case and we are cooperating fully, providing whatever information is necessary to resolve the issue quickly.
The police have emphasized that packages can only pose a threat if actively opened. We therefore recommend that customers accept packages only from senders that they know or recognize, or packages with items that they themselves have ordered. At this time, investigative authorities have not indicated an elevated threat level in connection with posted packages, but do believe it is possible that the perpetrators could send more explosive devices.
