GLEN ALLEN, Va. -- A United States Postal Service employee has been caught on surveillance cameras chucking packages onto a porch in Glen Allen.

Paul Witten said this is a battle he's been fighting for a while.

He provided CBS 6 with surveillance video that dated back to July, that appeared to show the same postal carrier throwing his packages.

The most recent package throwing incidents happened Monday, when Witten said medical supplies were delivered.

The video, captured from a hidden camera in his doorbell, shows the mail carrier tossing boxes not once, but twice, in the same day.

Other neighbors who spoke with CBS 6 said -- as far as they knew -- they'd never had any issues with their deliveries being thrown.

U.S. Postal Service sent CBS 6 a statement that read:

"A thrown or mishandled package is unacceptable and does not reflect our commitment to our customers and the careful efforts of the thousands of professional, dedicated carriers and clerks in our workforce. The Postmaster was notified of the incident and has contacted the customer and offered an apology."
