VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – A postal service employee is facing charges after he kept people’s mail in a Virginia Beach storage unit instead of delivering it. He told authorities he was overwhelmed and couldn’t complete his deliveries.
The investigation started back on May 29, 2019 after U.S. Post Office officials got a complaint about a postal service employee who was unloading mail into a public storage facility in Virginia Beach.
Court records state the witness took pictures of the suspicious behavior, took a picture of the employee’s license plate and contacted post office officials.
Records also state that Jason Delacruz was assigned as a city carrier assistant with the U.S. Postal Service at the Chesapeake Main Post Office. He has been working as a postal carrier since June 2018.
