­He was on the run from the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Taskforce, suspected of murder. Newark Police closed in and arrested him that day. With him was a New Jersey USPS city carrier. Was she simply in the wrong place at the wrong time?

Not based on what police found during the arrest: a trove of stolen mail, fake IDs, and a Glock 43 with a 60-round extended magazine. That’s when our special agents received the call to investigate.

The man, a felon, had lured the city carrier and another woman who also worked in New Jersey as a mail processing clerk into a mail theft ring. The city carrier was never charged with mail theft, but a third USPS employee who worked at a New York post office was also roped in. The women knew what to look for during their shifts — credit cards, checks, U.S. Treasury checks, stimulus checks, and other mail items that could be used for profit.
