A USPS worker in Kansas City, Missouri, has been caught dumping loads of mail off the side of a road, according to a report from

He was caught on camera by an investigator working with the city. USPS sent employees to the site Friday to pick up the mail, which appears to be mostly fliers and advertisements, according to the report.

“These actions – if true – are not consistent with and don’t represent the values of the Postal Service organization and will not be tolerated. Since this is an active investigation we are unable to comment further, but will take all appropriate actions based on the results of the investigation to ensure that the integrity and values of the USPS organization are upheld,” USPS said in a statement to KSHB.
