(WOIO) -

A U.S. Postal carrier caught dumping thousands of pieces of mail by Carl Monday has now been indicted by a Federal Grand Jury.

Brandon Hawkins had already resigned, just days after Monday confronted him about the mounds of mail accumulating behind an abandoned house on East 123rd late last year.

Among the stacks of mail were 915 pieces of first class mail, certified mail from Juvenile Court, and some two thousand pieces of metered mail, including time-sensitive election literature from Mayor Frank Jackson and other candidates and issues.

At the time, Hawkins claimed he knew nothing about the mail dumping, even though it was found along his assigned route.

Ironically, Hawkins' father is a long-time Post Office Manager now currently serving as the Customer Service Manager for the Lakewood branch.

Hawkins, if convicted, could serve prison time.  If that should happen, let's hope he's not assigned to the prison mail room.
