NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Officials say a former letter carrier dumped undelivered mail into a ravine in Virginia four times this year.
The Virginian-Pilot reports (http://bit.ly/1GqiCzW) that a neighborhood man in Norfolk found the mail and brought two trash bags filled with tax information, bills, handwritten letters and magazines to the local post office.
Thirty-one-year-old Shalita Corley of Chesapeake was indicted Wednesday on four counts of secreting and detaining mail.
The indictment accuses Corley of dumping the mail into an overgrown lot next to the Lafayette River four times in January and February.
A spokesman for the Postal Service's Office of the Inspector General declined to comment on the investigation but said all the recovered mail has been delivered and Corley no longer works for the Postal Service.
