On Monday Greenwich Police arrested a letter carrier, Gregory Ferrigno, 27, of 25 Truesdale Lake Drive in South Salem, NY, who they say was stealing mail from his route.
Police, along with representatives of the US Postal Service office of the Inspector General, responded to the Cos Cob Post Office on a report from one of Ferrigno’s co-workers who had spotted stolen mail within plain view on the back seat of Ferrigno’s car.
When police arrived, they saw the mail inside the Ferrigno’s car, and it was addressed to a residence on his route.
Mail records indicated that the package should have been delivered on July 14.
Evidence of previous mailings were also found hidden in Ferrigno’s mail truck.
When Ferrigno appeared at the post office parking lot around 3:o0pm, he went to his vehicle and put a cooler inside it.
When Police interviewed him, he admitted to having stolen mail over the previous three weeks. He also admitted there were several items within the vehicle that he had stolen from packages he was supposed to have delivered.
“The postal service doesn’t accept that at all,” Lt Slusarz said. “The mail was spotted in the rear seat of his personal vehicle.”
Ferrigno, 27, of 25 Truesdale Lake Drive in South Salem, NY was charged with Larceny 6.
Ferrigno has a date in court on July 30. His bond was set at $100, which he was able to post.
