7/20/17 NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) – Some Lakeview residents say they’re fed up with the U.S. Postal Service. They’re turning to surveillance cameras to prove their packages aren’t being delivered on time.
Kerry Stockwell recently installed surveillance cameras to help deter crime in her Lakeview neighborhood. Now, they’re serving another purpose; helping her to prove the postal service isn’t attempting to deliver packages when they say they are.
“I woke up Sunday morning and I had an email saying they attempted to deliver a package at 10:20 the night before. That’s kinda late but I happened to be awake and I happened to be in my front room and I would’ve known if the mailman had come,” Stockwell explained.
She says she checked her surveillance cameras and the footage shows no one approached her door to leave a notice or the package.
“There was no notice and they never showed up so it was really just a lie,” Stockwell said.
