A Modesto man was charged with burglary Wednesday in a federal court indictment alleging he broke into a United States Post Office last year, the California Eastern District U.S. Attorney’s Office said.
Court documents allege Thomas Patrick Day, 40, broke into the Wallace post office on July 2, 2020. Wallace, a small town in Calaveras County, is about 40 miles north of Modesto.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service investigated the case.
