Postal worker tosses mail into dumpster

CINCINNATI, Ohio (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A postal worker dumped a slew of mail into a dumpster and it's caught on camera.

A Cincinnati-area mail carrier dumped two boxes filled with letters, bills, and paychecks into the receptacle this week.

Shortly thereafter, residents complained that they didn't receive their mail on Wednesday.

The Post Office investigated, and says it has since recovered the missing mail.

The postal worker in the case could be charged with federal misdemeanors for deserting mail and delaying delivery.
