    Thanks to those that caught my errors in the comments and helped me make this better.

    Early in the chapter you will go to the police station to meet Dee for lunch. There is a note on the wall to the left of the kitchen. Read that to mention “kid sized”. Go upstairs to drop off your file next to Eddy’s door.

    When you are ready head to the kitchen and choose the cobbler. Pay attention to Dee outside and when a woman comes in to talk to her choose to “eavesdrop” to find out the Mailbox Bandit is an animal/raccoon. After that you can just wait or talk to Greggs. Dee will come in and mention catching the Mailbox Bandit. Hold LT and from the options, choose “it was an animal”. Achievement should pop shortly after she confirms.

    If you miss the LT event or don’t get the “animal” option, you will have to retry the achievement through chapter select.

    Here is my 100% Achievement guide and full walkthrough!

    When we enter the police station for the first time in this chapter, we need to go upstairs to Eddies office and drop off our file.
    Once done, head back down, take a right into the canteen where officer crapcut.. haircut.. Greggs!! Is sitting.
    Interact with the cobbler on the table and thus begins a long waiting sequence.
    You can either talk to Greggs or keep waiting, but keep an eye out on Denise who's just in view.
    Hover over the door until you get the prompt to "eavesdrop".

    You should here them talking about who's been screwing with the mail.
    Once Denise enters the canteen to see you, she says "Guess what? We've found the mailbox bandit"!

    At this point, press the cn_LT and then the cn_X button to say "It was an animal"
    Achievement should unlock.

    Go to 28:50 to see the start of where to get this.

    Hope this helps!
