RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Residents who live at Overlook Brook Run Apartment Complex in Richmond are concerned after a bin full of abandoned mail was left outside of their apartment complex.

“It’s really outrageous that the mail carrier would leave it there,” resident Deborah Bethea told 8News.

Bethea says when she looked inside the crate of mail, there were some ripped open envelopes belonging to other people.

Neighbors are worried their personal information could be stolen.

“There’s a lot of important mail that gets sent here, so I feel like that was negligent of them,” another resident, Taylor Yeboah, added.

8News reached out to the United States Postal Service for a statement. We were told a supervisor picked up the mail bin full of undelivered mail and that USPS is investigating the situation.
