  • Postal Worker Rented Storage Unit For Mail He Never Delivered (REAL)

If you live in Virginia and feel as if your mail hasn't been arriving, we may know why. A United States postal worker was caught with a public storage unit full of mail he never got around to delivering. Jason Delacruz worked as a mail carrier in Chesapeake, Virginia and said he felt "pressured" and couldn't "make time" to complete his mail route many times so he decided to rent out a public storage unit for $49 a month just to store the mail he didn't deliver. He intended to deliver the mail at a later time but never got around to it. He never destroyed any of the mail but he never delivered it either according to authorities. They found almost 5,000 pieces of mail in the storage unit in Virginia Beach. The bulk of the mail was advertisements, more than 4,700 ads were in the unit. Delacruz could face a fine or up to five years in prison, according to federal law.
