U.S. Postal worker caught on camera tossing packages

postal worker in trouble

LUMBERTON, TX - A recent social media video showing U.S. Postal worker caught on camera carelessly tossing packages in a Lumberton neighborhood Sunday has frustrated some residents.

"The lady was in a very big hurry and seemed anxious but it didn’t matter to her if anyone was looking, she would still toss them,” said a Lumberton resident who didn’t want to be identified.

While in the car, the Lumberton resident says she witnessed the employee mishandle more than a dozen packages.

"She wouldn’t go very far up the driveway and then tosses them like a bowling ball,” said the Lumberton resident.

Kanickewa Johnson, a spokesperson for the U.S. Postal Service says, "This is clearly unacceptable behavior that does not reflect the efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated carriers in our workplace.”

That spokesperson says the U.S. Postal Service is reviewing the video to gather info. It’s unclear if the worker could be dismissed for her actions.
