UPDATE: FedEx Driver Questioned after Hundreds of Packages Were Dumped in Blount County


Authorities say they have questioned a FedEx driver after hundreds of packages were recently found in some woods in Blount County.

Blount County Sheriff Mark Moon says investigators spoke with security personnel for FedEx and identified a driver. The driver’s name wasn’t released, and Moon did not indicate whether any charges were possible.

As many as 400 packages were found on private property last Wednesday near the small town of Hayden.


FedEx said it was cooperating with investigators and that the person involved was no longer providing service for FedEx Ground. It said it would deliver recovered packages where possible and seek resolution for damaged shipments.
