NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) A cargo worker at John F. Kennedy Airport is accused of stealing from care packages meant for U.S. troops serving overseas.
Investigators said the theft was discovered when the suspect was caught wearing one of the stolen items.
His job was to handle them with care, but postal inspectors said Terrance Ralph, 41, was helping himself to items meant for soldiers by picking through packages. Packages from family, friends and businesses were allegedly targeted.
Parcels were received in Germany and they had been rifled. The Postal Inspection Service was notified and through varying investigative techniques, we realize Mr. Ralph was rifling the mail, Donna Harris, of the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, told CBS 2′s Tony Aiello.

There is an opinionated FR member who, I think, is involved in this Postal Inspection thing.
I can not remember his SN right now. Maybe someone else does ans can ping him for a comment on this.

Mail theft is a federal felony under Section 1705 of Title 18 of the U.S. Code, punishable by two to five years in a federal prison. Mail theft also is a crime under state laws in California, Minnesota, Oregon and Utah.

"That's an error if he did that", said one man, "If it's true, it's an error."
To err is human. To steal is divine.

Just how stupid is this jamoke?
We have sent many package to our USMC infantry son and others.
Lots of fresh heavy socks, jerky beef, in the summer instant ice packs, interesting food items...
Never anything of great value, most of what goes there, stays there.

NO, send him to Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary(ie.THE BIG HOUSE). Last I checked , stealing from the US Mail was a federal crime.
He’s six inches lower than a snake’s navel.
I must be racist!
Yes, you are and so am I as my thoughts were the same. He probably thought that was one of the perks of the job. The entitlement mentality is very pervasive.

“The entitlement mentality is very pervasive.”
Yep, he probably thought it wasn’t “fair” that those poor slobs who are defending us got goody packages from home. He demanded social justice and redistribution. To put him in prison would be racist. He’ll walk.
