Authorities believe a child predator sent packages to young girls in Alabama and other parts of the country.

Prosecutors say unsolicited packages have been sent to two Phenix City, Alabama girls that were addressed to them in care of their elementary school.


The office also said in a Facebook post  that authorities including the FBI reported the packages contained food and a letter signed "Atur Bhuck of Santa Fe, NM," as well as visitor's packages from New Jersey.

"Bhuck" wrote he was 14-years-old, mentally disabled and a target of bullying. He asked the girls to reply at two email addresses.

The FBI says one email account appeared to originate from Houston, and that more than 50 similar packages were ordered for minor-age girls in Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia.
