Australia Post mailman 'too lazy' to deliver almost 10,000 items

An Australia Post mailman “too lazy” to do his job, who was found with almost 10,000 undelivered items in his bedroom, has pleaded guilty to theft charges.

A Melbourne court heard Mark Baguio, 28, became “overawed” with his duties and could not cope with the job he once liked.

Prosecutor Kristie Eales said Baguio had failed to deliver about 9800 pieces of unaddressed, personal or “junk” mail between February, 2009, and February, 2011.
