(Las Vegas, NV) — A Las Vegas letter carrier is on unpaid leave, while the postal service investigates allegations of misplaced mail.
Officials aren’t saying how much mail was misplaced, how old it was, or where it was found. But the Las Vegas Review-Journal has obtained an apology letter dated December 31st, sent by the Las Vegas Postmaster to customers along with their delayed letters.
Theft, destruction or delay of mail is a federal felony. If found guilty, the suspended employee could face up to five years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000
