COLUMBUS, Ohio – To the average person, pictures obtained by 10TV simply show boxes of mail.
To Larry Bales, they are proof of a seemingly never-ending frustration with postal deliveries in his northeast Columbus neighborhood.
“It sucks. It’s really bad. We’ve had a lot of problems,” he said.
Sources gave 10TV the photos to show why people served by the Oakland Park Post Office have complained for years about not getting mail some days, mis-deliveries other days and missing packages and letters that sometimes don’t show up at all.
Carriers we spoke with say the pictures represent a small portion of the mail that never got delivered to five northeast Columbus neighbors just one day earlier.
