What the...?! What do I do about this?!?

It was sent priority mail which to me means it shouldn't have gotten stolen in their possession, right? Who do I need to go to or what in any professional opinion (or not) should/can be done about this?

It was not necessarily stolen. The USPS uses automated sorters in the majority of their BMC hubs.

1. Let the sender know what happened. 2. File a complaint with the postmaster general in your area. 3. The sender should also file a complaint with the postmaster general. Talk to the folks at your local post office about this, and they will show you how to go about filing a complaint with the postmaster general.
