It could be a 'hide in plain sight' situation, or it could be a 'no one ever goes to the post office, anymore' situation, but something may be up, up in Carr.

Certainly, stranger things have happened, but it does draw your attention when you hear that the post office in Carr has been shut down because of suspected meth activity.

The Greeley Tribune has the story of how the 40-year-old post office is shut down after an air-quality test there failed. Could it have failed the test because of meth? The United States Post Office had this test done because there are rumors that say, 'possibly.'

The post office was shut down because there were, indeed, unnamed particulates in the air. The inspectors said there weren't enough particulates to have to call anybody in for testing, but there were enough of these yet unnamed particulates to say, shut the doors.'

The particulates could stem from when the shed that sits on the property caught fire back in May.

After that shed fire, rumors of a meth 'operation' grew, and the Postmaster called in USPS to look into it.

The USPS is going to clean, and remodel the old building and make sure that it does past the air quality test. They do not suspect that any USPS employees or the Postmaster were involved in any meth activities.

But, like any good drama, there's more to the story.

There's a residence attached to the Carr Post Office, that's leased out; both the post office and the residence were sharing ventilation. New remodeling will make the ventilation systems separate from one another. It does seem like there is at least a possibility that illegal drug operations happening at that residence, with particulates drifting over to the post office through shared vents.

There are no law investigations underway regarding the Carr Post Office.

At the very least, a remodeled post office is in store for Carr.
