PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Postal service investigators identified an employee believed to have dumped mail in the trash at Tanglewood Apartments in February.

A federal court will have to decide whether to pursue charges. Investigators do not have a motive of the alleged crime.

The unnamed employee still works for the postal service.

The discarded mail was later distributed to their rightful customers.

The alleged incident happened on Feb. 16.
