Postal employee from Kansas city admits to stealing mail
KANSAS CITY (AP) — Authorities say a postal employee from Kansas City has pleaded guilty to stealing mail.
The U.S. attorney's office says 55-year-old Terry Williams admitted Thursday that the theft occurred in 2015 and 2016 while he was working at a mail processing center.
Prosecutors say federal agents watched Williams pluck colored envelopes from the trays of mail he was loading to be processed. When approached at the end of his shift, he dropped a bag he'd dropped the envelopes into and ran. Agents chased Williams, tackled him to the ground and handcuffed him.
Agents seized two gift cards from Williams and found 232 greeting cards in the bag he'd kept under this work station. Inside his vehicle's trunk, agents found 104 greeting cards, 34 Netflix DVD mailings and three gift cards.
