Brooklyn Mailman Found With Over 17K Pieces Of Undelivered Mail Said He Was Focusing On ‘Important’ Deliveries.

A Brooklyn postal worker is facing federal charges after he sat on over 17,000 pieces of mail so he could focus on delivering “important mail” first.

According to NBC, Aleksey Germash’s mail hoarding came to the light after USPS received a tip that there was a Nissan Pathfinder in Dyker Heights with over 20 bags full of mail.

After a search, federal authorities found years of undelivered mail in the postal worker’s car and apartment, and he even admitted there was some in his work locker too. The mail dated back to 2005.

So why was he doing this? He reportedly told investigators he was “overwhelmed by the amount of mail he had to deliver, but made sure to deliver the important mail.”

Germash, who’s been working for USPS for 16 years, was charged with delaying or detaining mail.
