The manager of a Kenner post office stole $630,000 worth of stamps and sold them online after losing more than $667,000 while gambling in recent years, federal authorities said this week.
Prosecutors also allege Ryan Cortez, 46, embezzled nearly $10,000 from a church in Des Allemands that listed him as its treasurer.
The alleged theft was to fuel a gambling problem to which he confessed, the feds allege. And in the process of allegedly stealing stamps, authorities said, Cortez made history by committing one of the largest internal thefts the U.S. Postal Service has ever seen.

The problem was discovered when claims had been made that the stamp was not sticking to envelopes, and that mail which had been sent using the "Hillary" postage was not being delivered. Senator Clinton demanded a full investigation into the allegations.
A special Postal Service Investigation team was formed and after several months and many dollars spent, made the following findings:
*The stamp was manufactured properly.
*There was nothing wrong with the adhesive.
*People were just spitting on the wrong side.
Well, he came close to breaking even.
One who got caught, plenty of others that will probably get away with it.
Now THAT’S funny!
Where can anyone cash in $630,000 worth of stamps?

Meanwhile, the Ethel Rosenberg of our time, Hillary Clinton, is free as a bird.
The mind boggles.
Think about this, if the avg. stamp value was for letter size stamps:..
$630,000 divided by .50/stamp = 1,260,000 stamps? How does one unload 1,260,000 stamps?
They are just going after him because he has a Hispanic surname. And to publicize this on October 12th! Dia de la Raza! Have they no shame?
It's right in the first line of the article.
sold them online
Yeah I saw that. I was just wondering who buys them online when you can just go to the post office.
The snake knows it's stolen, but doesn't care.
The story didn't say, but I suspect the sellers ad was responded to by a US Postal Inspector who allowed the criminal to supply the proof.
