Postal worker charged in gift card theft

By Washington Post editors


Federal prosecutors say a Postal Service employee has been charged in a criminal complaint with stealing gift cards from the mail.

Fifty-one-year-old Andrew Walsh of Cockeysville was arrested Tuesday night. Prosecutors say 450 stolen gift cards were in his car.

According to an affidavit, postal workers at the distribution center on Fayette Street in Baltimore found numerous greeting cards that had been torn open. From 20 to 100 rifled cards were found almost daily.

Investigators connected some of the stolen and used gift cards to Walsh.
