ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (CBS4)– Instead of delivering the mail, an Englewood letter carrier was stealing it. Randy Younger, 47, avoided prison and was sentenced by federal judge William Martinez to three-and-half-years probation including six months home detention.
It was a combination that provided trouble, Younger was both a mailman and a drug addict. He admitted stealing thousands of pieces of mail to get his hands on gift cards and cash to support his heroin habit.
At the Englewood Post Office, investigators using surveillance video found Younger stealing from the boxes where letters had been deposited for delivery by people with faith in the U.S. Postal Service.
