Federal special agents with the United States Postal Service raided a home of Baldwin, Pennsylvania mail carrier after receiving an anonymous tip that the mail carrier was hoarding and discarding mail rather than delivering it.
On Sunday night, the special agents raided the Sean Troesch’s home, sizing eight large garbage bags suspected to be full of undelivered mail. In a statement, the United States Postal Service Office of Inspector General said it agents responded to a tip and promised to inventory and redeliver each item to it’s intended receiver.
“Special Agents recovered several different classes of mail, including business mail, flats, and small amount of first class mail. We expect to perform a piece count of the mail tomorrow, and make arrangements to have to mail delivered to customers as soon as feasible,” the statement said.
According to local affiliate KDKA, neighbors who did not want to be identified said they suspect other mail has already found its way to the landfill. Neighbors say trash bags, like the ones shown in a photo from two weeks ago, have been put outside Troesch’s house almost every Sunday night for Monday morning pickup.
KDKA also said that the post office did comment that the latest haul of discarded mail did not contain any ballots and it appears the mail was not opened.
