An album sheriff’s office is investigating as hundreds of FedEx packages ended up in a forest grove.
“I currently have a deputy on a spot where it appears 300-400 boxes of various sizes have been thrown from a ravine,” the Blunt County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) Said in a statement Wednesday. “An area manager from FedEx is on the way to the scene. Hopefully we will have some answers soon.”
Blunt County Sheriff Mark Moon told CBS News That deputies were sent to the scene to guard the area before FedEx workers arrive to pick up the missing packages, saying the delivery company had sent several drivers and trucks.
“FedEx is on the scene, let the work begin,” the BCSO said on its Facebook page.
The department also shared photos of various packages scattered throughout the forest.
The packages were found near Haydn, which is about 30 miles north of Birmingham, according to CBS News.
In a statement to CBS, FedEx said, “The security of the shipment of our customers is a top priority,” adding the treatment of customers’ packages “with the utmost care” is a top company commitment.
“We are taking steps to recover and transfer the affected packages as quickly as possible,” FedEx said. “In addition to cooperating with law enforcement, we are conducting a review of this situation and will take the appropriate action.”
