A U.S. Postal Service mail carrier in Massachusetts is facing a federal charge after authorities said he stole gift cards from people’s mail.
Brian Thibodeau, 48, was indicted on one count of theft of mail by an employee of the U.S. Postal Service and was arrested Thursday. He appeared in Boston federal court and was released on conditions.
“Beginning in 2001, Thibodeau worked for many years as a letter carrier in the Saugus Post Office,” according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. “It is alleged that, in 2020, Thibodeau stole customers’ gift cards sent in the mail and spent them for his personal use.”
