Mail Carrier Stole Letters

Published tisdag 23 maj 2006 kl 11.35

The Swedish Post Office has discovered that a mail carrier stole as many as 3000 letters over a two year period, containing more than 5000 dollars in cash and checks.

The thefts were discovered when a resident in the southern city of Lund filed a complaint about a missing letter. The Post Office’s internal investigation unit reportedly set a trap for the carrier on that route. When police later raided his apartment, they found 38 kilograms of missing mail.

The postal authorities are now trying to find the proper recipients for the letters. But those who lost money may have a hard time collecting, since the Post Office rule is to not compensate for ordinary mail losses without receipts.
