Who woulda thought such a thing could even happen??
A U.S. Postal Service worker in Baldwin, PA was busted after bringing a ton of undelivered mail home with him and putting "several trash bags" full of it out to the curb on garbage day to be picked up and trashed.
Special Agent Scott Balfour of the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General said the following in a statement released Tuesday:
"USPS OIG Special Agents recovered several different classes of mail, including business mail, flats, and small amount of first class mail. We expect to perform a piece count of the mail today, and make arrangements to have to mail delivered to customers as soon as feasible."
As CNN also notes, MUCH TO THEIR CHAGRIN of course, this ALSO happened last week:
Another recent mail dumping incident
Last week, the Justice Department charged a mail carrier in New Jersey for dumping mail.
According to a DOJ statement, 26-year-old Nicholas Beauchene was arrested and charged with one count of delay of mail and one of obstruction of mail. If found guilty of both charges, he faces up to five years and six months in prison and a $255,000 fine.
Court documents say that Beauchene has worked for the Postal Service since July. He's accused of dumping 1,875 pieces of mail in two dumpsters, one in North Arlington and the other in West Orange.
Hey guys I have a great idea:
Let's leave the 2020 election up to the United States Postal Service! 😑
