Almost 600 undelivered Amazon packages were found dumped outside Oklahoma City on New Year’s Eve, authorities revealed on Wednesday.
The packages, which were discovered in a rural area northeast of the city, were all supposed to be delivered by Christmas, according to the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office. “Someone had removed the items they wanted and discarded the rest,” reads a statement released by the sheriff’s office. The driver who discarded the packages has since been fired and arrested on suspicion of cargo theft, a rep for Amazon confirms.

While little information has been revealed about the driver, the sheriff’s office reports he’s not exactly a bookworm. “Apparently the thief isn’t much of a reader,” reads the statement. “The books that were being delivered were left behind.”
