Alberta RCMP Charge Canada Post employee who allegedly stole 500 items

"If you're planning a holiday or are unable to retrieve your mail, have someone pick up your mail for you or use Canada Post's Hold Mail service. Deposit your outgoing mail close to the scheduled pickup time posted on the mailbox."


Wainwright RCMP, the Eastern Alberta District Crime Reduction Unit, along with Postal Inspectors from Canada Post executed a search warrant on November 23 for a residence and vehicle belonging to a Canada Post employee.

"A significant seizure of stolen property in excess of 500 deliverable items was recovered. The deliverable parcels have been returned to Canada Post for continuation in the delivery process to their intended destination," RCMP press releases stated.

The suspect, who is from wainwright, was subsequently arrested and released with undertaking and conditions to appear in Wainwright Provincial Court on January 5, 2023.

RCMP are continuing to work closely with Canada Post and other police agencies in this matter.
