SAN CARLOS, Calif. (KGO) — A mail carrier was in court Thursday for a status hearing after he was accused of stealing mail on the Peninsula.
Daly City police arrested Romeo Natan after investigators say he tried to use stolen credit cards at a Target store. It appears he obtained the cards after filling out applications sent to customers along his route in San Carlos.
San Mateo District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe suspects Natan snatched up to 3,000 pieces of mail. "You and I as victims may not even know that there was a credit card envelope taken out of my mail and somebody then filled it out, put my name on it, and got a credit card," he said.
