Video: In Alaska, Settlers Bay post office closed for investigation

WASILLA – The Settlers Bay contract post office in the Valley is under federal investigation.It’s accused of delaying mail, a crime which can lead to jail time and heavy fines.

Staff say they didn’t see this coming and that special agents showed up on Friday night and told them to shut the office down.

People who stopped by to pick up their mail Monday were also shocked, as they were given no notice that their mail had been moved.

“I’m very frustrated, very frustrated,” said post office regular Barbie Billig. ”I just pulled up, and I had no idea that our mail was not here anymore.”

Now, instead of signing for packages, customers like Billig are signing a petition for the Settlers Bay post office to restore service.
