$19,000 Worth of PS3s Stolen from UPS — By Employees

Just when I think thieves can’t get any crazier, they top my previous expectations. Three UPS employees have stolen $19,000 in PS3s from UPS.

A trio of UPS employees have been arrested for stealing more than $19,000 worth of the systems from the delivery companys Elmwood distribution center, according to Jefferson Parish Sheriffs Office incident and arrest reports. Sean Weber, 25, of Harvey, Norbert Joseph, 37, of Picayune, Miss., and Jasel Bolden, 29, of Gretna were booked with theft valued at more than $500.

The men worked nights at UPS and shipped at least 20 of the PlayStation 3 units and 24 wireless video game controllers to their day job at Andrews Sport Company Inc. in Jefferson, using pilfered mailing labels, the arrest report said.

That’s amazing. While it’s almost impressive that they got away with it for as long as they did. Surely, 20+ customers complaining about receiving something other than the $600 PS3 they paid for would tip someone off.

At least that helps out future wanna-be thieves out with a good bit of information: Stealing packages that have tracking numbers by default is probably not the best of ideas…
