(CNN) Bags of mail were dumped in a parking lot in Glendale, California, last week, according to surveillance footage obtained by CNN.

The September 3 video shows a Budget rental vehicle backing into the lot of 7Q Spa Laser & Aesthetics.

A person is seen exiting the vehicle and tossing numerous bags off the back of the truck into the lot.

Minutes later, the person gets back into the vehicle and drives away -- leaving the bags of mail in the lot.

She said upon closer inspection of the bags, she noticed they were filled with hundreds of unopened envelopes and packages from the US Postal Service.

You start thinking, 'OK, something is going on,' because no one has access to all those boxes and packages.".

US Postal Service employees weren't involved in the dumping of bags, Omar Gonzalez, the Western Regional Coordinator for the American Postal Workers Union, told CNN. »
