Hundreds of FedEx packages found dumped in Alabama


If you’re missing a FedEx package, officials in Blount County may know why. Investigators are trying to figure out how hundreds of FedEx packages ended up dumped in the woods in Alabama. The Blount County Sheriff's Office says up to four hundred packages of various sizes were found in a ravine near the small town of Hayden. Sheriff Mark Moon says deputies were sent to guard the scene until FedEx workers could arrive to pick up the packages. FedEx issued a statement that it's cooperating with law enforcement and is working to transport the packages as quickly as possible. The sheriff says it wasn't clear why the packages were in the ravine, but he hoped to have some answers soon.
