“Apparently the thief isn’t much of a reader,” the statement said. “The books that were being delivered were left behind.”
The packages, according to the sheriff’s office, were supposed to have been delivered by Christmas and had left an Amazon facility en route to a US Postal Service facility for delivery.
The sheriff’s office says they are working with USPS and have reached out to Amazon.
CNN reached out to Amazon and the US Postal Inspectors for comment but did not immediately receive a response.
This is the third recent incident in which dozens of packages were dumped, or found.
