Brandon trucker admits to theft of diamond rings from U.S. mail

TAMPA — In the spring of 2012, four diamond rings went into an Express Mail box bound for Huntington, N.Y.

Instead, one wound up in a Brandon pawn shop and three were kept by a truck driver whose company contracts with the U.S. Postal Service to transport mail, according to a federal court document filed Tuesday.

Kyle Joseph Hebenstreit, 41, faces a criminal charge of opening mail without authority, punishable by up to a year in prison.
