U.S. News Nov. 25, 2021 / 1:54 PM Hundreds of FedEx packages found dumped in ravine in rural Alabama By Jake Thomas
f you’re missing a FedEx package this week, try a ditch in Blount County. Late Wednesday afternoon, the Blount County Sheriff’s Office posted on Facebook that its deputies had discovered hundreds of FedEx packages tossed into a ravine near Hayden. Blount County Sheriff Mark Moon told media that FedEx officials also drove to the scene and inspected the boxes and determined that there were “between 300 and 400” apparently undelivered packages in the ravine. “FedEx has sent multiple trucks and drivers from all over the South and will begin loading the packages as soon as the sun comes up,” Moon wrote on Facebook. “I will have a deputy on scene until the work is complete.”

Your joking right? They cant tell who had last custody of those 300-400 packages via their tracking numbers? Possibly it was Smartpost which includes the USPS.
So what if they were boomm booms. What about drugs, guns and things that blow up?
Union Pacific railroad said there was a rash of cargo container break-ins as the containers were being hauled by train near downtown Los Angeles, as officials are trying to clear the backlog of cargo at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
Thousands of boxes as far as the eye could see were strewn along the railroad tracks near Valley Boulevard and North Mission Road in Lincoln Park in footage captured by NewsChopper4 Monday.
The boxes appeared to have fallen or been tossed off cargo containers being hauled by Union Pacific trains.

The packages look like they have been opened and many appear to be empty. Early Christmas 'shopping' anyone?
At least they discovered this sooner rather than later. I have no idea how they will rectify this though.
