NORTH TEXAS CBS 11 NEWS – An estimated $450,000 in jewelry, stones and precious metals that disappeared in the mail, has been connected to a U.S. Postal Service delivery truck driver in Fort Worth.
A federal judge accepted a guilty plea from Hubert McDonald this week, after an investigation that lasted more than two years.
Federal court documents say packages sent to Fort Worth from Cash America pawn shops all over the country started disappearing in June of 2011. The packages were never seen again once they left the USPS Processing and Distribution Center on Mark IV Parkway. Investigators discovered McDonald was the truck driver on duty when the packages disappeared.
