Postal Worker Found With Mail From 1996

FRANKLIN, Ind. – Some city residents could soon get letters nearly 10 years old after police found several bags and boxes of undelivered mail in a postal worker’s home, authorities said.

Police were investigating a domestic dispute at mailman Glenn Snow’s home when officers found first-class mail dating from 1996 to 1999, police said.

A female roommate told police Snow did not deliver the mail because it was too much, according to a police report.

The only word to describe this level of laziness is admirable. And he can’t even be prosecuted.

    Doesn’t it seem sometimes that everything in life is a Seinfeld reference?

    The settlement check is in the mail.

    The check really is in the mail.

    Please excuse my ignorance, but why can he not be prosecuted? Interferring with the delivery of US mail is a federal offence. I’d say that storing it in his residence constitutes interferring.
