I’ve never looked at the aluminum carts used by the U.S. Postal Service and seen a lucrative criminal opportunity. But it seems two Maryland men did.
Aaron Keith Howard of Brooklyn, Md., and Roland Michael Muir of Glen Burnie have been charged with stealing postal carts in Capitol Heights, stripping them of identifying marks, and selling them for scrap. According to the charging documents the two men made $223,717 off the deal. But the Postal Service estimated the replacement cost for the carts at $2.2 million!
That’s 383,000 pounds of scrap by the way. Even though this heist didn’t ultimately work out, I gotta say, I’m kind of impressed.
