Postal Worker Caught On Video Hurling Packages Into Ravine

Posted: Updated:

If you live in the Birmingham area, and you're missing a suspicious number of packages, you may want to consider checking your local ravine.

An unidentified United States Postal Service worker in Birmingham, Ala., was caught on video Monday apparently removing some packages from a USPS-branded mail delivery van and then hurling them off a steep embankment by the road. You can see the hurling in question in the video above.

When reached for comment by the Alabama Media Group, Special Agent Kenneth D. Smith of the USPS crime investigation unit said that the employee resigned from the USPS on Thursday after the video went viral on social media. Smith declined to identify the worker by name.

"As with any ongoing OIG investigation, I can't comment on specifics," he added.

The whole thing sort of reminds us of when a USPS driver was caught on camera last year driving over a homeowner's lawn to deliver a package:

In that instance, at least the package actually reached its intended destination.
