Hundreds of Amazon packages dumped in Oklahoma
Oklahoma authorities said hundreds of Amazon packages were dumped in a rural area northeast of Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO) said in a Facebook statement that it is investigating how almost 600 Amazon packages were found in the area on Dec. 31.
Authorities also said someone removed items from some of the packages.
“Apparently the thief isn’t much of a reader,” the statement said. “The books that were being delivered were left behind.”
The OCSO said that packages were supposed to arrive at their destination by Christmas time and had left the Amazon facility en route to a U.S. Postal Service facility for delivery.
“If you’re missing a package, please don’t call us,” the sheriff’s office said. “We are working with the USPS and have reached out to Amazon, so someone should contact you soon.”
This comes after Alabama authorities found hundreds of FedEx packages that a driver dumped in a ravine in November.
The former FedEx driver was arrested by authorities in North Carolina last month, according to CNN.
