FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

A Fresno mail carrier has been fired for throwing away mail. The United States Postal Service says the mailman admitted he threw away letters about "Obamacare."

People who live at a Central Fresno apartment complex snapped pictures of the inside of the dumpster filled with mail about "Obamacare". Witnesses say the mail was dumped in the garbage by their mailman.

"He just kept glancing over his shoulder over and over again. It was like he knew what he was doing was wrong," said witness Jerry Dills.

Dills says he brought the mail that he found in the garbage to his local post office where he filed a formal complaint against the carrier.

KMPH spoke with a representative from the U.S. Postal Service who said he questioned the carrier and the carrier admitted to the throwing the mail into the garbage dumpster.

According to the U.S. Postal Service spokesperson, Gus Ruiz, the mail carrier said, "He was running late and wanted to get back to the post office on time."

Ruiz says the mail carrier, who was a temporary worker hired in August, was fire immediately.

Ruiz added the discarded mail would be delivered on Tuesday.
