Amazon delivery driver is sacked after he is filmed ‘opening customers’ packages’ in his van
An Amazon delivery driver has been fired after he was caught on camera ‘opening customers’ packages’ in his van.
Shocked customer Caz Brown, 35, filmed the driver rifling through parcels when she looked outside her window in Newent, Gloucestershire, on Wednesday.
She said he opened around four parcels while sitting in the driver’s seat after making a delivery to her home.

Ms Brown (pictured) said: ‘He kept looking back up the drive suspiciously, in case someone came round the corner. He opened about three or four packages and then drove off’
Ms Brown quickly took out her phone to film the driver in the act. Footage shows the driver reaching over to the passenger seat and grabbing a small box.
He then appears to open the box and looks at the contents before sliding it back into the packaging.
The driver then puts the package back onto the passenger seat. More parcels can be seen in the footwell area of the van.
The clip ends with the driver putting his key in the ignition before driving off.
Speaking today Ms Brown said: ‘I was upstairs hoovering when he came.
‘I collected my parcel, went back up the stairs to continue and saw the van parked outside still so I watched him from the bedroom window.

‘I noticed him opening parcels and checking what was in them.
‘He kept looking back up the drive suspiciously, in case someone came round the corner.
‘He opened about three or four packages and then drove off.
‘My package hasn’t been opened as it was taped shut with the Amazon tape so clearly it would have been obvious if it was tampered with.’
A spokesperson for Amazon today said: ‘We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and how they serve customers.
‘We are taking this matter seriously and have reached out to the customer to make this right.
‘The delivery associate will no longer be delivering on behalf of Amazon.’
