Postal worker accused of stealing gift cards from mail

A U.S. Postal Service worker has been charged with stealing mail — mostly envelopes she suspected contained gift cards — from the Arlington Main Post Office.

According to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Alva D. Jackson, an Arlington mail carrier, allegedly stole items from the mail from October 2008 to March 2010.

She stole and used gift cards for Target, Macy’s, Best Buy, Wal-Mart and various restaurants, according to the affidavit. Jackson estimated that she took about 10 to 20 pieces of mail per week during the holiday seasons, and 10 or fewer pieces at other times.

  1. i had a coworker who did this, she was in charge of lost and found in the mail. i worked lost and found and saw hundreds of gift cards glad i was to chicken to steal i didn’t want to loose my job. i had another coworker who stole birthday cards and other coworkers who were fired for stealing. people are just crooks and think they can get away with this stuff but if grandma asks grandson did you get that 20.00 i sent in a birthday card and the card never showed up and never comes back then she complains then the postal inspectors will start sending birthday cards with 5 dollars in them and expect them back. if they don’t ever get any of them back on a certain route someone is in trouble. if that gift card sent by mother to daughter is reported missing and it is cashed in (although it took forever)someone is in trouble. my coworker was on camera using the gift card. ugly. don’t do it.
