Amazon packages thrown in Oklahoma City


Authorities found nearly 600 Amazon packages discarded in Oklahoma City on New Years Eve, which were due for delivery before Christmas.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office wrote in a Facebook post that the packages were found in a rural part of northeastern Oklahoma City and someone took the items they wanted and threw it away. rest.

“Apparently the thief is not really a reader … the books that were delivered were left behind,” OCSO wrote.

The tracking numbers indicated that the packages were leaving Amazon’s facilities for delivery to USPS but never arrived. The sheriff’s office asked people with missing packages not to call them, and instead, someone from USPS or Amazon would contact them soon.

Recently there have been several reports of delivery drivers throwing packages. Last month, an Alabama man and former FedEx contract driver admitted to dumping hundreds of packages into a ravine in November.
