Video: New York letter carrier fired after stealing money from cards

Savannah, N.Y. (WHAM) – State Police arrested a U.S. Postal Service (USPS) mail carrier Tuesday for allegedly stealing money out of cards on her route.

According to our news partners at the Times of Wayne County, Lindsay Snyder, 24, is accused of picking out what she believed to be greeting or birthday cards from customers on her route and steal any cash, or gift cards she found.

Postal Inspectors reportedly became suspicious after several complaints were filed. As part of an investigation, they planted three obvious mailings on Snyder’s route. Snyder subsequently opened the cards, according to police, and the case was turned over to the State Police.
