Former Medford postal worker pleads guilty to stealing mailed holiday cards

A former U.S. Postal Service worker has admitted to intercepting dozens of pieces of mail that passed through Medford during last year’s holiday season and pocketing gift cards and other valuables inside.

James Scott Thomas, 48, pleaded guilty Monday to a felony charge of mail theft in U.S. District Court in Medford.

Thomas worked in Medford between December 2019 and January 2021, according to the plea agreement filed earlier this week.

A letter carrier in South Florida lied about having a kid to fraudulently receive EFEL leave. She is getting her job back with back pay after the legal department in the PO let her off the hook. So basically you can lie on federal document to get 1400 a week and get your job back.
