Packages were addressed to an apartment across from the Hollins Market but none of them made it to the destination. 

McRae was seen passing a package to Gray while on his route in January 2018 on the corner of West Lombard and Mount Streets. 

Ten months later, surveillance was then set up at the Franklin Station Post Office and on McRae’s.
