CARNEGIE (KDKA) — A delivery snafu with the U.S. Postal Service this weekend had one neighborhood confused as to what happened with their packages and when they saw where the boxes were, some got pretty irritated.
The townhouses have their mailboxes grouped in two locations, so when people saw at least a dozen packages laying out in the open this weekend, it raised some concerns.
Kaitlin Clark said, “I just saw that there were a bunch of packages lined up underneath the mailboxes here. I was surprised that they would do that because it can be stolen.”
Many of the packages are from Amazon Prime, which guarantees one-day shipping.
Typically the boxes arrive at the customers door, so seeing them underneath the mailboxes set off some alarms.
Some connected to the homeowners association were angered and took pictures wanting to file a formal complaint with the Post Office and Amazon.
The Greentree Post Office is responsible for the deliveries made to the Carnegie neighborhood.
