Dozens of tubs of mail found in Petersburg VA dumpster

PETERSBURG, Va. — U.S. Postal Service officials are investigating after tubs of mail were found in a dumpster at a Petersburg apartment complex Friday.

Natasha Lee and others living at Tanglewood Apartments were relieved to see a large U.S. Postal Service van pull up near the dumpster around 9 a.m. Friday.

But instead of a uniformed postal worker getting out, two armed, plain clothes agents began sifting and removing mail from the dumpster.
