At approximately 4:20 a.m. on the morning of Feb. 27, 2010, several police officers from the Amherst Police Department (Amherst PD) responded to a report of a building alarm at the United States Post Office located on 141 North Pleasant St.

According to a press release from the Amherst PD, one of the responding officers quickly determined that someone had forcibly gained entry into the building via a rear door of the post office, and officers at the scene soon noticed an individual fleeing the building.

The suspect, Daniel Carley, age 20, was apprehended behind a residence on Kellogg Ave. and was placed under arrest. The ensuing investigation by police showed that Carley was allegedly attempting to steal post office property from the scene, but was scared away by the responding officers.

Carley, a resident of Walpole, Mass., was charged with breaking and entering at nighttime and attempting to commit larceny. He is a student at the University of Massachusetts, and was arraigned in Eastern Hampshire District Court last Monday.
