In this case involving the warrantless search by postal inspectors of a postal employee's locker at the post office, the salient facts are essentially the same as those presented in United States v. Bunkers, 521 F.2d 1217 (9th Cir.), cert. denied, 423 U.S. 989, 96 S.Ct. 400, 46 L.Ed.2d 307 (1975). We adopt the rationale of the Ninth Circuit in that case and uphold the district court's denial of appellant's motion to suppress.
