    A Maryland man says he caught a United States postal worker on camera launching a package out of their car and onto his La Plata porch.

    John (who didn't want to use his last name) said he came home Tuesday afternoon and found the package near the edge of his front porch.  A surveillance camera aimed at his front door and driveway captured the postal worker pull into his driveway just before 11:30 a.m. and throw the package out of an already open window. 

    Inside the package, which he says was labeled fragile, was a computer router.

    When he took the footage to the La Plata post office, John said didn't receive much of a response. But he soon received a call requesting more information and later an apology.

    "He assured me I would receive top-notch service from now on," John recalled.

    John said he's lived in his La Plata home for 12 years and the same car always delivers his mail. He says he hopes the person seen the surveillance footage was just a substitute and adds the router seems to be working fine.

    Wanting to remain anonymous because of his job, John had his friend post the video online, where it's gone viral.

    News4's call to a local spokesperson for USPS was not answered.
