News of the investigation came from U.S. Rep. Randy Weber, interviewed briefly by a Daily News reporter in early October.
“There is an ongoing investigation involving leadership with the postal service,” Weber said. “They have boots on the ground and will leave no stone unturned. However, details of the investigation are not being released to ensure thieves do not catch on and alter tactics.”
We’re cautiously encouraged an investigation might be underway, although understandably skeptical. Because aside from the theft, violations of trust and financial wreckage for many, one of the most infuriating aspects of this entire debacle is a universal lack of action and communication by the government and the Postal Service.
