Throwing away mail is a federal crime punishable by jail and fine
FORT MYERS, Fla. – A Florida postal worker was caught throwing mail into a dumpster behind a local restaurant.
WINK-TV reports that surveillance video captured images of the unnamed worker tossing the pieces of mail into the trash.
Among the items tossed into the dumpster were flyers from a realtor and dozens of personal letters.
The restaurant owner who witnessed the trashing called the post office and the realtor who paid for the flyers.
“At first I thought she was just dumping out some trash. I didn’t think much of it, but when she flipped the bin over, I could clearly see it was mail and letters,” Louie Rondao told WINK-TV.
Special agents are now investigating the incident.
According to the report, throwing away mail is a federal crime.
