Postal Employee Charged With Theft of 450 Netflix Movies From Mail

Press Release from the U.S. Department of Justice :

INDIANAPOLIS – Ricky L. Alsip, 53, Evansville, Indiana, was charged with theft of mail by postal employee, announced Timothy M. Morrison, U.S. Attorney, Southern District of Indiana, following an investigation by the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General.

The information alleges that Alsip stole approximately 450 DVD format Netflix movies that had been placed in the mail for delivery to Netflix customers in Evansville, Indiana.

According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd S. Shellenbarger, who is prosecuting the case for the government, Alsip faces a maximum of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. An initial hearing will be scheduled before a U.S. Magistrate Judge.

An information is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

  1. the over payed jerkopff did not have to do this to feed anyone. you stupid asshole you actually defend thjis kind of behavior??? He obviously is a greedy bastard . He is damn lucky he did’nt steal my dvd,I would by his balls until they rip off and then stuff them in his mouth. Anyone who steals from the mail should be taken out and shot,I would be gald to do that. thieving bastard

  2. Maybe if we postals would have gotten our 2 COLAs this year, he would not have had to do this to take care of family. Sell them NETFLIX Xtra income!

  3. They should skip the jail sentence and make him stay employed at the USPS until he pays a $250,000 fine. In other words, for the rest of his life. But that would probably be considered cruel and unusual punishment.
