Another US Postal worker accused of stealing mail

USA TODAY reports that “[a] Florida letter carrier has been arrested for allegedly stealing about 4,000 pieces of mail, mostly greeting cards from a local retirement community.”

Miranda Delee Farleigh, 25, allegedly stole cards and letters for months, searching them for money. Farleigh worked as a contract mail carrier for the USPS for six years and worked with a route that included The Villages retirement community in Orlando, Florida.

“Miranda Farleigh admitted to me that she had been rifling mail containing greeting cards in order to steal currency and/or gift cards,” according to Keith. “Farleigh confessed that while she had been working in the official capacity as a mail carrier, she had targeted the outgoing mail that was dropped off by residents in The Villages.”
