'I know where you live...' Police investigate threatening letters

Ottawa Police are investigating several threatening letters that have been mailed to homes in the Capital.

Police say the letter comes in a hand-written envelope, addressed to one of the residents, and is stamp marked from Calgary.

The letter itself is a handwritten photocopy on an 8.5" x 11" sheet, and makes death threats against the reader's family, saying, "I know where you live..."

Police say they've received at least 27 complaints about these letters and believe they're being mass-distributed.

If you have received this letter, or you have any information about this matter, please contact West Criminal Investigations Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 2666. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers toll-free at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS), or by downloading the Ottawa Police app.

Police are asking you to leave the letter intact, if you get one.
