[Ed. – Neither rain nor snow nor lack of temporary storage space when they’re strapped for time …]
A time-strapped United States Postal Service worker who was unable to complete deliveries on his Virginia route rented a $49-a-month storage unit into which he dumped about 5000 pieces of undelivered mail, according to a U.S. District Court filing.
Jason Delacruz, who began working as a postal carrier in June 2018, has pleaded guilty to a charge of delaying the delivery of mail. The 38-year-old Delacruz, who resigned his USPS job last year, is scheduled for a February 12 sentencing on the felony count.
Delacruz’s scheme was disrupted when he was spotted “unloading mail into a public storage facility” in Virginia Beach. …
When confronted by federal investigators, Delacruz said he “can’t make time” and felt “pressured” to complete his route, but was unable to do so.
