Sheriff: FedEx driver threw crates in the woods at least 6 times

An Alabama sheriff says a FedEx driver dumped packages into a ravine in the woods at least six times

Hayden, Ala. –The FedEx Ground driver has dumped packages down a ravine in the woods at least six times, the Alabama sheriff said as the company and investigators continue to sort through the mess.

In an update on the case, Blount County Sheriff Mark Moon said Tuesday there were about 450 casualties after hundreds of packages were discovered dumped last month.

“This will not be an easy or quick case to close,” Moon said. “Once again, I ask for patience from our citizens while our investigators work on this case.”

Moon said the driver, whose name has not been released, has been identified and questioned.

“The security of our customers’ shipments is a top priority and we are committed to treating our customers’ packages with utmost care,” FedEx said, adding that it will deliver returned packages where possible and strive to resolve any damaged shipments.

The valley is located about 30 miles (50 kilometers) north of Birmingham. Moon said the discovery was made on private property near the small town of Hayden in Blount County.

After the discovery, deputies guarded the site, and FedEx sent several trucks and drivers from across the South to pull the packages, according to the sheriff.
