After this, the unidentified employee has been placed on leave without pay, Fox News reported. According to the agency, the employee works at the post office in the small town of Mount Oliver.
“USPS OIG Special Agents recovered several different classes of mail, including business mail, flats, and small amount of first class mail,” Special Agent Scott Balfour told CNN. “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.”
Balfour then added that they will present the case “for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office” when “USPS OIG special agents conclude their investigation.”
He also mentioned that the Postal service employs 630,000 Postal Service people. Most of them are “hard-working, trustworthy individuals.”
“Incidents of this nature are exceedingly rare when put into that context,” he also said.
