Officers in the Burlington, Massachusetts police department temporarily performed the work of Amazon drivers when a number of undelivered (misdelivered?) packages were found in a local cemetery.
A diligent grounds keeper at the Chestnut Hill Cemetery came across something suspicious this morning and called us right away.
It appears that a number of Amazon Packages were dumped in one of their garbage disposal bins.
We are investigating to see how they wound up there. pic.twitter.com/cI11ewRoHc

A “diligent groundskeeper” at the nearby cemetery discovered the Amazon packages on Monday in a trash bin, and got in touch with the Burlington MA PD.
Police did not say exactly how many packages there were, but photos posted on social media showed about 20.
The packages were addressed to Burlington residents, so police took it upon themselves to deliver them.
They are also investigating to determine how the packages ended up at the cemetery and have contacted Amazon.
