Residents catch postal worker throwing mail on ground

By Brandon Walker - Reporter

HOUSTON - Neighbors in a Cypress subdivision expressed concern Thursday over cellphone video that shows a postal worker throwing mail onto the ground, rather than placing it into respective mail boxes.

"I just saw mail flying out of her car," said Blaire Gregg, who recorded the video Wednesday.

The video was recorded in the Park Creek subdivision, which is located off Huffmeister Road. Other residents told KPRC2 they have complained to the postal service about damaged deliveries and packages not being delivered.

"I'm probably the fourth or fifth person who's complained about the flying mail," Gregg said.

In a statement to KPRC2, A spokesperson for the United States Postal Service said the matter has been brought to the agency's attention:

Postal Service condemns, in the strongest possible sense, behavior that jeopardizes the security and sanctity of the U.S. Mail or threatens to tarnish the reputation and high level of trust that the vast majority of our employees work so hard to uphold. We have already begun investigating this incident and are working to recover the mail and notify impacted customers. It is the responsibility of all USPS employees to protect all mail, money and equipment entrusted to their care each day.
