Mail mysteriously stopped showing up for nearly 3 weeks in this Syracuse neighborhood

Mail mysteriously stopped showing up for nearly 3 weeks in this Syracuse neighborhood

Neighbors in Syracuse are demanding answers after they stopped receiving mail for nearly three weeks.

Now the United States Postal Service says it is investigating.

Service resumed Monday for neighbors who live on West Onondaga Street, but it's unclear why the service was ever suspended in the first place.

Neighbors say it's been two frustrating weeks, and a big inconvenience, especially for those who don't have a car.

One neighbor says Post Office officials told him a threat toward a mail carrier, from a neighbor living on a nearby street, was the reason for the service disruption.

Some who have been living in the neighborhood for decades say they've never seen a disruption last this long, and they're disappointed by it.

Some neighbors say cutting off service could've had dangerous consequences.

"I myself have my pills delivered through mail, but UPS delivers them, but if I had to rely on the USPS, it could have been sitting down their for the full two weeks and I could not have had my medication," Michael DeVaul, who lives in the area, said.

USPS officials say mail carrier safety is a priority and the decision to suspend service is not taken lightly. They say they will monitor the situation and make changes if necessary.
