Authorities say mail was found scattered along about 65 miles of area interstates this morning, from Interstate 270 in Maryland Heights to a part of Interstate 55 in Ste. Genevieve County.
The mail and boxes were found scattered along the southbound lanes of Interstates 270 and 55. The path appeared to start at I-270 and St. Charles Rock Road.
The Missouri Highway Patrol and U.S. Postal Inspection Service are investigating and retracing the route where mail has been found.
They think a truck dropped the mail early this morning but they don’t yet know whether it was a U.S. Postal Service truck or a commercial carrier.
