A mailman from New York has been arrested after failing to deliver 17,000 pieces of mail.
Aleksey Germash, a 16-year-emloyee of the U.S. Postal Service, had stowed thousands of letters and parcels in his car, apartment and work locker.
He’d been caught after his car was reported to his bosses containing 20 bags of undelivered mail.
Germash says he was “overwhelmed by the amount of mail he had to deliver, but made sure to deliver the important mail.”
