Montgomery Co. Residents Call Mail Delivery Sporadic



    Some Bethesda, Md., residents say they haven't received mail in a week. News4's Chris Gordon reports. (Published Tuesday, Jan. 28, 2014)

    Residents of several Montgomery County neighborhoods have contacted News4, saying their mail was delivered sporadically and to wrong addresses several times in the past week.

    Bethesda and Kensington residents say they've been having problems with the mail since last Tuesday.

    "I've gotten stuff for neighbors that are pretty important tax documents and I've had to deliver underneath their doors," Carly Glazier said. 

    Some homeowners contacted the Westlake Post Office. 

    "He said, 'I don't care about your problem,' and hung up," Diana Huffman said. "People have been told there was no carrier assigned, people have been told they're not allowed to deliver mail after dark -- though some have been delivering after dark. It's been difficult for people to be taken seriously. Some people are missing packages, I have a prescription I'm waiting for that I can't get." 

    The U.S. Postal Service Issued the following statement to News4:

    "There were two days last week when mail delivery may have been suspended: Tuesday and Wednesday. Some customers received mail; others did not. Tuesday followed the holiday and the weather was inclement. Many roads were either inaccessible or unsafe."
