Video: Authorities contacting victims of accused Maryland mail thief

Investigators are contacting people they believe were the victims of a postman accused of stealing bagfuls of mail — a fairly straightforward task, apparently, because evidence they’ve seized has the victims’ addresses written on the front.

“U.S. Mail addressed to you was recently found in an opened condition in connection with an active investigation,” Special Agent Steven Mason of the postal service inspector general wrote in a letter obtained by The Baltimore Sun.

Earlier this year, agents acting on a tip raided the home of postman Jeffrey L. Shipley and seizing large volumes of mail. In late May he was charged in connection with the theft of about 20,000 pieces of mail and items including Netflix videos, credit cards and other valuables.

    Unfortunately, the Inspection Service has no tolerance for this type of behavior. So joke all you want, but don’t allow this to be you! McDonald’s doesn’t pay as we’ll!
