Chicago man, Pawel Borowski-Beszta, charged with drug trafficking after dropping ‘suspicious package’ in the mail

A Chicago area man, Pawel Borowski-Beszta, has been charged with drug trafficking after police responded yesterday to a “suspicious package” into a United States Postal Service mailbox, which turned out to be filled with drugs.

Borowski-Beszta, 25, of the first block of East Chicago Avenue was arrested about 1:10 p.m. Wednesday and has been charged with felony trafficking of a controlled substance and felony possession of 10 to 30 grams of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Police detailed how the “suspicious package” was placed in a Logan Square mailbox in the 3600 block of West Fullerton Avenue prompting a call about 10:35 a.m. Wednesday to police Bomb and Arson Unit squad and a Fire Department hazardous materials teams.

Officials closed streets and the CTA buses were rerouted around the area.

By about 1:30 p.m., it was determined the package was not and explosive device and apparently was “narcotics-related” and streets were reopened, police said.

Borowski-Beszta was set to appear Thursday in Cook County Central Bond court for a hearing.

Back in 2013, Borowski-Beszta was charged in August 2011 after police found a .40-caliber handgun, ammunition and two safes containing 126 grams of marijuana, 29.7 grams of cocaine, $1,000 in cash, a money counting machine and scales in an apartment in the 0-100 block of Harrison Street.

He was sentenced to six years in prison.
