One of the boxes contained a $400 Kindle Fire HD, according to homeowner Tarry Smith.
The video, which was released online, has made a splash on social media.
“To throw packages out of your vehicle catapult style is a little shocking,” Smith told WTVQ. “I mean even if they don’t ring the door bell, what’s the harm in walking 4 or 5 more steps?”
David Van Allen of U.S. Postal Service Corporate Communications released a statement saying the USPS was looking into the matter.
“It is very disappointing and does not represent the kind of service we strive to provide our customers. This matter is currently being investigated to determine the appropriate actions taken with regards to the employee and our customer,” Van Allen said.
