DECATUR, Ga. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service says a worker who was filmed dumping letters into a ditch outside Atlanta is no longer delivering mail.
The mail carrier was seen dumping mail he was supposed to be delivering to residents in a Decatur subdivision. Officials didn’t release the name of the accused mail carrier. Postal service spokesman Rick Badie tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/2ee38V6) the worker was a part-time employee.
Kellie Campbell, the subdivision’s homeowners association president, said she recorded the postal worker walking near a fence and dumping several bins of mail there.
Roughly thousands of letters were estimated to be scattered near the ditch last week.
