Steubenville Postal Worker Found With 2,000 Pieces of Mail

Posted: Updated:
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -

A US Postal worker from the Steubenville office has been placed on leave after investigators say they found more than 2,000 pieces of mail in the worker's personal vehicle.

Our news partners at the Herald-Star say a special agent with the Postal Office of Inspector General received a call on July 30 that a supervisor had seen the large amount of mail in the employee's car.

The more than 2,000 pieces of mail have since been delivered and postal management will determine what will happen to the employee.

Special Agent Scott Balfour says that the employee is "currently in a non-duty, non-pay status."
