RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A 20-year-old part-time mail carrier accused of abandoning the mail was to go before the Federal government today.

The hearing for Timothy Myrick in Federal court was continued.

Last month, mail was found soaking on the bottom of a Bon Air creek. Myrick was accused with one count of abandoning the mail.

He's been suspended without pay while the case is investigated.
