Postal Service Investigators have recovered about 2,500 pieces of missing mail and are in the process of sending it out now. .. Sam Montalvo, Public Information Officer with the southeastern division of the Office of the Postal Inspector General, said a former Ft Payne postal worker, is under investigation for taking the mail. Montalvo would not release the name of the employee – he did, however, state the person in question has resigned, adding that the case will be presented to a federal prosecutor, to decide exactly what charges should be filed  most likely, Federal Mail Theft. The Ft Payne Postmaster says customers began calling the post office around mid-August to report missing mail in the area, with the target appearing to be mostly birthday and/or anniversary cards.WEIS
