“Honderde mense het nie hul Kersgeskenke gekry nie,” Woordvoerder van Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office, Aaron Brilbeck, het Maandag aan Fox News Digital gesê. “Dit is stoep seerowery op steroïede.”
’n Tipser het ingeroep om verslag te doen “illegal dumping” in a wooded area on New Year’s Eve, Brilbeck said. But when deputies arrived, they discovered the heist of almost 600 undelivered Amazon packages that had shipped out of the distribution center but never reached the Postal Service.
Many of them were in envelopes, rather than boxes, and the thief could feel their contents through the paper. The rest of the packages had been ransacked.
“Our deputies found hundreds of Amazon packages,” Brilbeck said. “The vast majority of them have been opened. Some had not. … The ones that weren’t open all contain books, and it appears the person is not very well-read.”
Videos shared by investigators show Amazon boxes and envelopes stacked up in the county’s crime lab, nearly filling it to its entirety as investigators sorted through the evidence.
The items were part of a shipment from a local Amazon facility that was meant to go to the U.S. Postal Service for delivery to hundreds of holiday customers.
“For whatever reason, they didn’t make it to the U.S. posdiens,” Brilbeck said.
The delivery driver is a person of interest in the case, hy het gesê, but he declined to identify any suspects in the case.
