Investigators say that an Atlanta sorting facility ditched 20 of its mail loaders, labeling them as lost, stolen, destroyed or not found.

“We estimate the Postal Service lost at least $26,700 in scrap value for this equipment,” said the U.S. Postal Service’s inspector general, the organization’s watchdog.
