Postal worker disposed of, hid thousands of pieces of mail, authorities say

 

A U.S. Postal Service mail carrier is accused of paying a man to throw away 11,000 pieces of mail and hiding another 6,000 pieces at his home, reports said Wednesday.

“Looks like I’m going to jail,” suspect Kristopher Block, 39, reportedly said when first confronted by police.

Block was charged in LaPorte Circuit Court in Indiana with a felony for official misconduct and a misdemeanor for theft, the Indianapolis Star reported, citing online court documents.

A warrant for his arrest was issued, but online jail records show he has not been taken into custody, the report said.
Block worked at a post office in LaPorte, Ind., from 2015 to 2017, WSBT-TV reported.
