WILX-TV reports that the worker is suspected of accumulating mail from his route in Portland, east of Grand Rapids. The authorities say that part of it was wet and damaged. Other pieces were burned.
A family member found the mail on Saturday after the worker moved out of the Sunfield Township home. The spokesman of the US Postal Service UU., Jeff Arney, said it is not clear if the mail was being saved for monetary gain.
The employee has been placed on leave. No charges have been filed.
