According to the Blount County Sheriff’s Office, deputies discovered “300 to 400 boxes of assorted sizes” that appear to have “been thrown off a ravine,” WIAT reported.

The ravine was located near Hayden in the southwestern part of the county, the sheriff’s office wrote in a Facebook post.

Sheriff Mark Moon said it appeared the packages had been dumped at the bottom of the ravine within the last 24 hours, AL.com reported. He said deputies would remain at the site until daylight, when FedEx trucks will arrive to collect them.

FedEx officials said workers will scan the packages to see where they came from and their destination, WIAT reported.
