LACKAWANNOCK TWP., Pa. (WKBN) – Pennsylvania State Police say a man in a FedEx uniform was seen throwing packages into a ditch in Mercer County.

It happened around 2:30 p.m. Saturday along Horvath Rd. in Lackawannock Township, according to a Pennsylvania State Police report.

When confronted by a witness, the driver said he would pick up the packages but then drove off without them, the report said.

The FedEx packages were recovered, handed over to Pennsylvania State Police Mercer and have been returned to FedEx for delivery.

According to a report, canned tracking numbers associated with the packages showed that the driver had marked that the packages had been delivered to customers’ porches before he discarded them along the roadway.

The truck driver has been identified as a contracted FedEx driver. Charges are pending a final tally on the value of all the packages.

Mercer County police are saying more packages have been found along other roads. They believe those packages could have come from the same truck.
