297 Amazon packages stolen after driver leaves them outside wrong post office

This is the time of the year when boxes get swiped from front porches, but these never even made it to the post office.

An Amazon courier left four pallets of packages outside the Pioneer Post Office in California on Sunday, reports FOX-40. That post office is closed on weekends.

The 297 parcels were destined for a different facility, the Jackson Post Office, the Amador County Sheriff’s Office told FOX-40.

“This is the second time the delivery company for Amazon did this,” said Undersheriff Gary Redman.

All the unattended packages were stolen and Redman told FOX-40 there are no photos or videos of the theft.

The sheriff’s office and the postmaster are working to identify the victims of the crime.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
