Bags of Undelivered Mail Found in US Postal Service Worker’s Trash

Several bags of undelivered mail were found awaiting garbage collection outside the home of a U.S. Postal Service worker in Pennsylvania, according to a report.

“The agents with Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General responded to a report about undelivered mail on Sunday outside the employee’s home in Baldwin Pennsylvania. The employee works at the Mount Oliver post office,” CNN reports.

The unidentified employee has been placed on leave without pay.

Scott Balfour, a special agent with the USPS OGI, told CNN that the bundles contained a variety of mail, including first-class and business deliveries.

“We expect to perform a piece count of the mail today, and make arrangements to have the mail delivered to customers as soon as feasible,” Balfour said.

“Once USPS OIG special agents conclude their investigation, the case will be presented for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” he said.

This is the second incident of mail-dumping reported in recent weeks. Nicholas Beauchene, a mail worker in New Jersey, was arrested and charged with mail obstruction after dumping over 1,000 pieces of mail.

  1. Don’t try to print this story on twitter. It will get your account locked.

    • It’s time to disappear several dozen twitter execs. Just simply make them vanish w/o a trace.

  2. I’m a 40 year rural letter carrier and still don’t get these idiots’ dumb-ass mindset. WTF!!?

  3. It was a wonderful miracle that President Trump was elected in 2016, and it will take a true miracle from God that President Trump win this election. My sisters, Mom, and I have been fasting and praying since the first of August for this. The lawlessness of the postal service, and states sending out thousands of ballots to even the dead is nothing but evil.

  4. While Republicans are not perfect we been trying for years to bring reform to the Postal Service. The USPS could be so much better if the Democrats would either get out of the way or contribute to the process in a productive way. I don’t want the postal service go away. I want to see it become a lot better for all.????????????
