A postal carrier truck that was driving from Portland to The Dalles early on Tuesday, May 28, had an open cargo door and lost approximately 20 boxes or containers of mail, according to police logs.
A person who answered the phone at the driver’s company said she had no comment. The company, Lapo, Inc., of Portland, is a U.S. postal contractor contracted to haul bulk mail, according to its website.
The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office briefing log stated a call came at 3:34 a.m. Tuesday from a U.S. Postal inspector, reporting the possibility of lost mail and packages that could pose a hazard for other motorists on Interstate 84.
