On November 16, 2011 a St. Paul’s School (Concord, NH) mail courier was sentenced by a Federal Judge and ordered to pay restitution to students for mail theft. The courier, David Hammond, stole cash and gift cards through the student mail as a way to source funds for his scratch-off lottery ticket habit.
The United States Postal Inspection Service investigated in October 2010 and then again in February 2011. The school had been suspicious of missing mail and contacted the Inspection Service. Hammond later admitted he had been stealing from students for years.
