Mail carrier dumps mail along Canandaigua route

Canandaigua, N.Y. -- The United States Postal Service is investigating an incident in Canandaigua where a carrier is believed to have dumped mail along his route.
About 65 pieces of first class mail and another 65 pieces of business mail along with 100 periodicals were recovered by Postal Service agents last Thursday and Friday along Swamp Road.

The vast majority of the Postal Services 500,000 employees are hardworking, dedicated individuals who work around the clock to deliver the mail. However, when one of them decides to betray the publics trust, USPS OIG special agents will vigorously investigate those complaints, and see to it that the individual be held accountable, said Special Agent Scott Balfour, A spokesman for the USPS of the Inspector General.

The postal service recovered and distributed the mail it was able to recover, though some of the discarded mail was destroyed.

We mailed bills out and Christmas cards so it wouldnt be good if they were lost, said Mary Maslyn of Swamp Road.

Ontario County Sheriffs Investigators and USPS OIG agents interviewed the employee at their home. Several magazines that should have been delivered were found at the home, according to Balfour.

The employee has been suspended pending the outcome of the USPS OIG investigation and the case will be presented to the U.S. Attorneys Office once the UPSPS OIG investigation ends.

Balfour would not say if the employee gave a reason why they apparently dumped the mail.
