    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Buffalo Police Department in the state of New York reported on Saturday the discovery of a suspicious package at the city post office, which the media believe to continue the series of similar discoveries earlier in the week.

    "BPD on the scene after suspicious device discovered outside of a post office in the 2000 block of South Park Avenue," the police department said on Twitter.

    According to the New York Daily News newspaper, the police suspect an imitator acting on the backdrop of reports about a series of packages with explosive devices discovered this week.
