EAST NORTHPORT - A FedEx employee was caught on camera throwing packages outside one of the company's Suffolk County stores.

James Munson runs a businesses from his home and says his FedEx-shipping packages often arrive broken and damaged. After a recent trip to one of the company's stores, he says he now understands why.

Munson was dropping off packages at the FedEx Office Print & Ship Center on Jericho Turnpike in East Northport when he says he witnessed the employee tossing boxes, which he decided to film. Some of those packages were marked "fragile."

He says the most upsetting aspect of the package-throwing is that it happened in front of the store while three other employees inside did nothing.

After News 12 showed FedEx the video, the company issued a statement saying, "We are committed to treating our customers' packages with the utmost care and will take the appropriate action to address this situation."

Munson says he was switched shipping services since the package-throwing incident.
