Federal lawmakers demand answers about mail theft, check fraud

Two federal lawmakers Friday morning officially asked the U.S. Postal Service for information about mail theft and check fraud in Southeast Texas — in Galveston in particular.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Rep. Randy Weber both signed a letter seeking answers by Dec. 2 to nine questions about the crimes.

The letter was prompted in part by this ongoing Daily News special report about the crimes and cites excerpts from past articles.

Lawmakers provided the newspaper with an advanced copy of the letter to Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, Chief Postal Inspector Gary R. Barksdale, Inspector General Tammy Whitcomb Hull and David Camp, Texas District 2 manager.
