CHICAGO (WLS) — A Chicago alderman said the United States Postal Service is investigating after 19 undelivered packages were found in the garbage on the South Side.
Alderman Matthew O’Shea, 19th Ward, tweeted about the incident Tuesday afternoon. He said a resident of his ward was taking her trash out around 4 p.m. when she found undelivered 19 packages in her garbage can.
She brought the packages into her house, reported it on social media, and reached out to the US Postal Service. A Postal Inspector came to her home to retrieve the packages, O’Shea said.
