Crofton is near where I am staying in MD at my daughter's. Drove thru it when parkway was closed when I took middle daughter to airport to fly home to Boston.

Maybe the original sender did not include enough (or any) postage???

USPS re-uses tracking numbers, sometimes much too soon.  This might be one of those times that the tracking is still showing info from a previous mailing???? Just a wild guess.

I have been retired from USPS for 3 years, but I  remember it was pretty easy to click the wrong event code on the scanner, delivered instead of attempted,  for example.
