STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (WKBN) – A US Postal Service employee at the Steubenville office is on non-duty, non-pay status after postal investigators found 2,000 pieces of undelivered mail in the worker’s vehicle.
The postal service is not releasing the name of the employee. Agents plan to speak to the Jefferson County prosecutor about possible criminal charges.
The Morning Journal reports that on July 30th, special agents with the US Postal Service Office of the Inspector General received a call from a supervisor in Steubenville who observed a large amount of mail in the employee’s personal vehicle in the parking lot. The employee consented to a search of the vehicle.
The 2,000 pieces of mail have since been delivered.
