HARTFORD -- A man requested permission to leave several vinyl record albums at the Hartford Post Office, and return the same day to pick them up but never did. Authorities in Hartford are now trying to determine the reasoning behind this incident.

According to Hartford police, a man in his 20s requested to leave the vinyl record albums Friday morning, January 22nd -- stating he would be back later that same day to pick them up. The man told the clerk he could not have the albums at his residence while his dad was there.

The vinyl record albums include a variety of artists including several of The Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Bobby Goldsboro, Herbie Hancock, Linda Ronstadt, just to name a few.
