Missing Some Mail From The Early '90s? There's A Shed That Might Interest You

The AP says that thousands of pieces of undelivered mail from the early ’90s were recently found in a shed in Michigan, and a ex-mail carrier is now charged with stealing mail — the punishment for which is up to 5 years in prison.

There were 544 pieces of first class mail and about 3,000 pieces of junk mail in the shed, says the AP.

Apparently the man became overwhelmed sometime in the early ’90s and started hiding the mail instead of delivering it, according to investigators.
