NYPD To Obtain Subpoena To Find Out Who Sent Condoms To Girl, 8

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Police said Friday that they will get a subpoena to find out who sent two boxes of condoms to an 8-year-old girl on Staten Island.

The family received the Amazon delivery, which included two boxes of condoms, at their home Tuesday, CBS 2 reported exclusively. The package was addressed to their daughter, Gianna.

"There was no explanation behind it," Christine Angelides said. "Until I get answers, I don't know what to make of it."

Even more bothersome, Angelides said, is that her daughter's uncommon name is spelled correctly on the box.

When Angelides called Amazon, she said the order wasn't a mistake and, because of customer privacy, the company couldn't say who sent the condoms. Amazon said it will need a subpoena to reveal the sender and credit card information. The company suggested the mother contact local authorities.

Angelides then called police, but that initially only left her feeling in limbo. Even though a police officer told her the delivery could amount to harassment, Angelides said detectives closed the case without finding out who sent the order.

Angelides said Thursday that she was worried about her daughter's safety.

"I'm very concerned if someone is watching her," she said.

But NYPD detectives said Friday that they will get a subpoena to find out who sent the package, as Amazon requires.
