Sacramento postal carrier fired over alleged dumping of mail

A Sacramento postal carrier has been fired for allegedly discarding mail in a Dumpster.

The U.S. Postal Service Office of the Inspector General was notified on Monday of the alleged dumping of mail in the parking lot garbage bin at an apartment complex in the 2700 block of Meadowview Road.

The mail was recovered and was delivered. The postal carrier suspected of the dumping was fired today, according to the postal service.

Postal service agents will continue to investigate the offense. Delay or destruction of mail is punishable to up to five years in prison.

An e-mail from a postal service representative noted that the overwhelming majority of carriers protect the "sanctity of the seal" of all mail entrusted to them.
