Mailman Dropped a Surprise Package

The U.S. Postal Service said a mail carrier photographed defecating in an Oregon yard has been suspended without pay.

Don Derfler of Portland said he was home with his son Wednesday when he looked out his living room window and spotted the mail carrier.

“He started pulling his pants down and started defecating, and at that point I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures,” Derfler said.

The Postal Service apologized for the incident and said the mail carrier has been suspended without pay.

“We’re taking this very seriously, and I really want to apologize to our customers and to the public. I’ve worked for the Postal Service for many years and have never heard of an incident like this, and I hope I never do again,” said Ron Anderson with the U.S. Postal Service.

Neighbors said the mess was cleaned up by men who identified themselves as postal inspectors.
