USPS workers accused of hoarding Portland Post

SUNFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 42-year-old postman is being investigated after finding post in a western Michigan home more than a year ago.

WILX-TV reports that Cheryl Everitt, 42, is suspected of hoarding mail from her route in Portland since July 2017. Officials say some are wet and damaged. Other pieces were burned.

A relative found the post office on Saturday after the worker left the house of Sunfield Township. US Post spokesman Jeff Arney said it was not clear whether the post office would be kept for cash.

The employee was put on vacation. No charges were filed.

WDIV-TV reports another postal worker is also on leave and stolen after mailboxes were found in an apartment in the Detroit area earlier this month.
