StarAdvertiser reports: "A former Hawaii island postal carrier pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court this afternoon to two counts of stealing mail.... faces a maximum five-year prison term for each count at sentencing in February. He pleaded guilty to stealing mail while on the job at the Kailua Kona Post Office in June and October 2010... retired this past February after more than 28 years as an employee of the U.S. Postal Service. ... stole a letter containing a $250 Foodland Super Market gift card in June 2010.... then stole in October 2010 a letter containing a $100 Target Stores gift card."

28 years of handling mail, I wonder just how many gift cards this guy stole? How much money from childrens' birthday cards, how many grads' gifts, how many Christmas gift cards went into his pocket? Perhaps he will enjoy his retirement sorting mail at a Federal Prison for a couple of years.
