A 27-year-old postal service employee was arrested at the Canadian border Tuesday after investigators found that he had more than 800 pieces of undelivered mail — including absentee ballots — in his trunk, according to a criminal complaint filed in federal court.

Brandon Wilson was stopped at Peace Bridge, the Buffalo, New York, roadway connecting US and Canada, by Customs and Border Protection agents. When they found the bin of mail, Wilson told them that it belonged to his mother and himself, but couldn't explain why the letters were addressed to other people and a variety of zip codes, according to the complaint obtained by Insider.

"Subsequent inventory of the recovered USPS mail pieces revealed three absentee ballots sent to two Buffalo, NY addresses from the Erie County Board of Elections, 106 political mailings, 220 first class mailings, and 484 standard mailings for an approximate total of 813 mail pieces," USPS Special Agent Brendan M. Boone wrote in the complaint.

Wilson, who was hired by the USPS in 2019, told border agents he wasn't headed for Canada, but made a wrong turn that landed him at the bridge.

He told investigators that he "intended to deliver the mail and had forgotten to return the mail pieces to the post office," Boone wrote.

He said he had placed bins of mail in the trunk of his car more than four times, but less than 10, after returning from his assigned route. The plan was to whittle down the amount of mail in his trunk by returning a small amount of it to the USPS facility each morning before his shift, Wilson told the special agent.

Wilson denied to investigators that he had stolen any greeting cards, cash or gifts from his route, or that he knew there were election ballots in his trunk.

He was charged with delaying or destroying mail and appeared in US District Court for the Western District of New York by teleconference on Wednesday.

Carla Benz, a public defender representing Wilson, didn't immediately return a message from Insider seeking comment on Thursday.

A spokesman for the USPS told The Buffalo News Wilson was assigned to "emergency placement," meaning he will be off-duty without pay.

The USPS has come under fire leading up to Tuesday's election over its handling of mail-in ballots.

Several civil rights groups have sued the agency, seeking that it deliver ballots in a timely manner.

Mail delivery has slowed this year in the US.

"The vast majority of the United States Postal Service's more than 630,000 employees are committed to ensuring the security of the United States mail," Desai Abdul-Razzaaq, spokesman for the Postal Service in Buffalo, told the News.

LEDERER Thu, October 21, 2021, 5:51 PM UNITED NATIONS (AP) — More than 40 mainly Western countries criticized China at a U.N. meeting on Thursday for the reported torture and repression of Uyghurs and other religious and ethnic minorities in Xinjiang, keeping a spotlight on the region where foreign governments and researchers say an estimated 1 million people or more have been confined in camps. Cuba followed immediately with a statement on behalf of 62 countries saying what happens in Xinjiang is China’s internal affair, and dismissing all allegations as based on “political motivation” and “disinformation.” China’s U.N. Ambassador Zhang Jun spoke soon after, denouncing “the groundless accusations” and unfounded “lies” and accusing the United States and a few other unnamed signatories of the
