Postal Worker Stole 200 Video Games, Sold Them

Illustration for article titled Postal Worker Stole 200 Video Games, Sold Them

If you ever had a video game go missing in the mail in the Boston area, it may be because a former postal worker has pled guilty to stealing over 200 games from packages he was supposed to have been handling.

James L. White, 68, was in a Federal court on Tuesday facing theft charges, and his guilty plea could have him facing up to five years in jail and a fine of $250,000.

Seems he intercepted the games throughout 2012 and instead of having them delivered, kept them for himself and sold them "to a software and video game retailer".

Boston is the most corrupt city I've ever lived in.

The joke about landlords and gas cans there is completely true.

As in, burn a property down and collect the insurance as opposed to fixing it up to code to make it livable.

Fuck Boston.
