CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A Gold Coast man is facing felony charges after he allegedly placed a package of narcotics in a Logan Square mailbox Wednesday, prompting a hazardous materials response that shut down traffic in the area for several hours.

Pawel Borowski-Beszta, 25, was charged with controlled substance trafficking and possession of a controlled substance, Chicago police said.

Borowski-Beszta was arrested at about 1:10 p.m. Wednesday after he allegedly dropped a “suspicious package” into a United States Postal Service mailbox in the 3600 block of West Fullerton Avenue, police said.

Police were alerted to the suspicious package at about 10:30 a.m. and closed off several blocks of Fullerton and Central Park avenues as a hazardous materials team conducted an investigation. The streets were reopened at about 1:25 p.m.

Borowski-Beszta is due in bond court Thursday.
