ALFRED, NY – Unsolicited packages of seeds from China, have been sent to people in Alfred. That’s according to Alfred Police Chief Paul Griffith and Steuben County Sheriff Jim Allard. “It was a package that they did not buy themselves, it was a 4 inch by 4 inch package, came from China, and had seeds in it,” Alfred Village Police Chief Paul Griffith told WLEA News this morning. “We’re working with other authorities to figure out what this is and why it was sent, but at this point, we don’t really know.”
This news comes after reports of unsolicited seeds arriving from China, in both Wayland and parts of Livingston County.
