A spokesperson for the post office said the carrierwas disciplined and temporarily taken off his route, but he has since been allowed back.

We want to see him replaced at the very least. We don't want him on our route. We don't trust him, neighbor Rick Yeoman said.

AUSPSspokesperson said something like this will not happen again with that mail carrier in the neighborhood.

Absolutely not. We're pretty confident that everyone has the message, USPS spokesperson Kerry Jeffrey said.

Neighbors said they've contacted lawyers to see what their options are.
