Mail delivery suspended due to crime

Posted: Updated:

HERMITAGE, Pa. - There's an old saying that neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night will keep the mail from being delivered.

But it says nothing about crime.

Video was taken of a police standoff at the Shenango Park Apartments that took place in February of last year.

Now, the post office says crime at the complex has become such a problem, that mail delivery is being temporarily suspended.

A spokesman for the postal service says a carrier reported witnessing a drug deal at the apartments and there have been recent reports of gunfire.

Delivery is suspended until a centralized bank of mail boxes can be installed. Until then, residents will pick up mail at the post office.
