BAKERSFIELD,Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A construction worker says he found piles and piles of stolen mail left in trash bins in northwest Bakersfield. The Good Samaritan tried to return some of the mail, and he contacted Post Office authorities. On Friday, postal inspectors picked up the latest batch, and promised an investigation.
“This right here is boxes, trash cans, truck-sized loads of mail,” Michael Adams told Eyewitness News. He’s working at some new homes under construction just off Rosedale Highway. Adams says crews have been spotting mail in their construction trash bins for a few weeks.
