Bold delivery: Postal worker caught tossing package, owner furious

April 4, 2017

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — Most of us aren’t home when our packages are delivered.

Have you ever wondered how your property is treated when you are not around?

A local woman had a sneaking suspicion her packages weren’t being cared for until she checked her security system.

A United States Postal Service worker was caught on surveillance camera tossing a package over a fence outside her Acreage home.

“It’s just frustrating,” said the homeowner, who wished to remain anonymous. “It’s just, do you value your job at all, if you’re that careless?”

The video shows the delivery truck driver approach the house, throw the package on the dirt driveway before driving off.

Even the warning surveillance camera sign posted outside her fence didn’t stop the postal worker.

Luckily, the items inside were workout equipment, built to take a beating.

However, she said this shows disrespect and carelessness.

Only an idiot would toss a customers package over the fence

Joann Philo Handley

I have dropped a package over a fence per the customers request and sometimes i stick it in the tree.

Shannon Cole

We aren’t allowed to open a locked gate they’d have to pay us for that and we all know that’s not happening

Jennifer Langworthy Mccormick

Firstly, it’s gated: leave a notice. Or, I have a gated drop. I leave the parcels in a garbage bag and let it over the fence and another that I leave outside the gate. Either way, I’m not throwing a package.

Becky Ryan

Throw it and get fired. …Nope. And That’s what’s wrong with the USPS.

Leland Grant

yes, after reviewing the video, he should have dismounted so he could drop kick the parcel over the gate
