VIRGINIA BEACH- A Virginia Beach man claims a FedEx driver left a special delivery in his driveway and it was all caught on his home surveillance camera.
Mike Wilson says when he noticed his package on the lawn he wanted to see why it was there and not on his porch. After watching the video, he says he saw a FedEx driver walk over to the passenger side of the truck, she looked around for a few minutes and he says he saw her squat.
Then he says she pulls out of a driveway and sees a puddle of some liquid laying on the ground. He went downstairs to see what it was and at first he thought it could be condensation from the truck but then he says he saw urine.
“It had a yellow tint to it,” Wilson said. “I’m 99.9% sure.”
He filed a complaint with FedEx yesterday and they told him that the liquid left in the driveway was AC dripping from the vehicle.
NewsChannel 3’s Nadeen Yanes spoke to a spokesperson from FedEx who confirms what Wilson was told.
The company later released a statement:
“FedEx has fully investigated this incident. The homeowner’s claims are not true and his own video proves they’re not true. The video clearly shows the water on the driveway dripped from the van’s air conditioning unit.
During the delivery, our driver was concerned for her safety due to the neighbor’s large, aggressive dog. As a result, the driver left the package and entered the vehicle on the passenger side. Safety is our primary concern and we reviewed with our driver the procedures on how to handle a delivery when confronted by a large, aggressive dog.
As always, we will continue to work with our customer to resolve any issues.”
A company spokesman for FedEx also said the driver took a picture of the dog for records purposes. They note that the picture shows the size of the dog and the condition of the fence.
