At the moment, it is unknown who decided to dump the boxes, or how long they had been abandoned in the ditch.
Following the discovery, police officers contacted FedEx representatives and stood guard next to the packages to prevent possible looting. Later, "multiple trucks and drivers" sent by the company arrived to retrieve the shipments and deliver them to the recipients.
"This is obviously more than one truckload of packages that has been dumped. This is something that we believe has happened on two or three different occasions," the sheriff surmised, quoted by NBC 15 News.
For their part, FedEx assured in a comment to Fox News that they will try to deliver "the affected packages as soon as possible" to their rightful owners.
