Ky. postal worker caught on cam throwing packages
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Derek Drake) -- A postal worker in Kentucky was caught on home surveillance throwing packages from his delivery vehicle onto the driveway, one of those packages contained an expensive tablet computer.
Jill and Tarry Smith installed video cameras at their home, not knowing they'd catch the video above.
In the video, you can hear the packages hit the ground, and the smaller of the packages ricochets off the jeep and hits hard on the concrete.
After finding her packages strewn across the driveway, Jill checked the surveillance video. A sign at the front of their property even advertises the home is under surveillance.
"I was astounded," she told WLEX-TV. "I just ran and found my husband and I'm like 'You have got to watch this.'"
The video got attention quickly thanks to Jill's post on Facebook where she shared the video with friends and family. "Maybe I was overreacting," Jill told WLEX. "Not so much; we've got a pretty big response."
The US Postal Service responded to the video in a statement to WLEX saying, "It is very disappointing and does not represent the kind of service we strive to provide our customers. This matter is currently being investigated to determine the appropriate actions taken with regards to the employee and our customer."
Amazon told the couple they will replace the tablet even though it doesn't appear to be damaged.
