GUTHRIE, Okla. – An Oklahoma postal carrier is accused of stealing from residents along his rural Logan County route.
The victims say while they can’t prove it, they think thefts have been happening on and off again for about a year.
Glenn Spunaugle is the one who reported the crime.
“Some people were telling us they sent mail and we didn’t get it,” said Spunaugle.
He reported it once and it seemed to stop.
But months later, he says it started happening again. He went back to the post office to make another report.
The inspector general came out immediately.
“He said, ‘I’ll set a trap.’ So, he got our residents’ names and mailed three birthday cards that day, fake ones, with cash in them,” Spunaugle said.
When the mail finally arrived, the cards were missing.
“As soon as he delivered the mail, they went after him,” he said.
