If you were expecting something in the mail back in 2009, there is a chance it might have been destroyed. A 15-year veteran of the Postal Service has just been convicted of destroying mail he was supposed to deliver.
Prosecutors say Warren Bradford of Upper Marlboro, a letter carrier at the Capitol Heights Post Office, was seen unloading several trays of mail from a postal truck and disposing of them in a secluded area in 2009.
Postal inspectors searched the area and recovered the mail, some of which was burned. Bradford was then arrested after he returned to the site of the destroyed mail in his mail truck.
Bradford is scheduled to be sentenced on May 25th.
