A FedEx driver dumped parcels into an Alabama ravine at least six times, resulting in the accumulation of more than 400 packages discovered last week, police say.

The Blount County Sheriff’s Office has identified and questioned a driver in the incident, which was discovered last Wednesday, Sheriff Mark Moon said on the department’s Facebook page.

Moon stated that investigators are looking into “around 450 victims”, some of which may be in Blount County, and others not.

He stated that it would not be easy to resolve the case quickly. As our investigators tackle this case, I ask for your patience.

The driver’s name was not released, and Moon did not indicate whether any charges were possible.

Moon explained that “there have been many questions coming into, mainly media-related, about the FedEx debacle.” Moon said, “More details will be revealed in the coming weeks. Please wait as we continue to work on them.” When we are able to share the information, we will.

FedEx released a statement stating that the suspect was not providing FedEx Ground services and it is cooperating in law enforcement.

“The security of our customers’ shipments is a top priority and we are committed to treating our customers’ packages with the utmost care,″ FedEx said, adding that it would deliver recovered packages wherever possible and seek resolution for any damaged shipments.

When the packages were found 30 miles north-east of Birmingham in a ravine, the sheriff’s office secured them so FedEx trucks could collect them. Photos on the office’s Facebook page showed workers on Thanksgiving Day retrieving the packages.
