Md. postal worker accused of stealing gift cards
Thanks to one man, federal officials said, plenty of birthday gifts never arrived.
Federal officials in Maryland alleged Wednesday that Postal Service employee Andrew C. Walsh, 51, rifled through more than 1,000 greeting cards and stole gift cards, cash and checks. When Walsh was arrested at his Cockeysville home Tuesday night, officials said, about 450 stolen gift cards were found in his car.
It started in January when workers at the Baltimore Processing and Distribution Center began to find greeting cards that had been torn open, court documents say. The workers turned the cards over to the Postal Service's inspector general.
An investigation was launched. According to court records, on April 15, a secret camera was installed that captured images of Walsh, a maintenance mechanic who is currently an acting supervisor at the center, rifling through cards and removing the contents.
