Shawnee Postal Worker Under Investigation for Hoarding Mail
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service says a postal worker in Shawnee is under investigation for allegedly hoarding mail.
U.S. Postal Service Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jeff Krafels says investigators received a tip last month that the postal employee was hoarding people's mail in Shawnee. He tells the Shawnee News-Star that agents recovered the missing mail on Sept. 2, and that the mail will be rerouted and delivered to customers.
Krafels says the person under investigation is now on "non-duty" status.
He declined to release further details about the investigation but said the postal service considers the allegations "to be a very serious matter."
