Father-son duo accused of stealing stamps
FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A father and son are accused of stuffing envelopes -- with more than $200,000 in stolen stamps.
Joseph Robert Baker, 51, and Matthew Robert Baker, 21, both of Fort Myers, were indicted Tuesday for the alleged thefts from June to November 2004.
The men stole the stamps from post offices in Florida, Ohio and Kentucky to support their drug habits, Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney Douglas Malloy said.
"They would go to the self-service areas of post offices, where there are no attendants," Malloy said. "They'd grab an express mail package, stuff as many stamps as they could in it and then rush out."
Surveillance videos linked the men to the thefts, he said.
The men's first court appearances have not yet been scheduled.
