A postal worker faced a double whammy Thursday: thieves broke into his truck while he was making deliveries in a Fremont neighborhood — then, when he returned to the post office where he parked, he discovered that his own car was gone.

“I was finishing up my shift for the day,” the letter carrier said. “Last street of my route.”

The carrier — who asked NBC Bay Area not to reveal his identity — said it happened at around 4:15 p.m. Thursday. He was returning to his truck when he noticed something was wrong.

“I immediately noticed that all my belongings that I had in there were missing. My phone, my wallet, my car keys, my air pods, my portable charger. And even some mail that I was like — people’s outgoing mail — that I was bringing back was taken,” he said.

He was able to use a neighbor’s cell phone to make calls, including to the police. Then he drove back to the Irvington post office where he had parked his own car earlier in the day. That’s when the situation got even worse.
