Atlanta Postal Worker Caught Dumping Loads Of Mail In Woods
Every so often, a moment comes where you simply cannot stand your job, and a freakout is typically accepted. The thought might’ve gone through the mind of Georgia postal worker who was caught dumping piles of mail into a ditch.
The incident was taped by a Kellie Campbell from DeKalb County on Tuesday (Oct. 18), who saw the postal worker park and dump mail behind her suburb for over five minutes. After informing CNN affiliate WSB of the dumping, the team found over a dozen bins filled with personal information and ad flyers.
After hearing about the incident, the USPS quickly released a statement. “The postal service condemns, in the strongest possible sense, behavior that jeopardizes the security and sanctity of the US mail or threatens to tarnish the reputation and high level of trust that the vast majority of our employees work so hard to uphold.”
The company believes the culprit might be a part-time worker. If identified, the suspect faces federal charges for the act.
“You have business statements, bank statements, very important mail that people are looking for and probably waiting for,” Campbell, who is the HOA president, said. On Wednesday (Oct. 19), five investigators picked up the abandoned mail for over two hours.
The USPS has launched an investigation. They added the intentional recipients of the mail will get them as soon as possible.
