Four mail carriers are accused of stealing the mail they are supposed to safeguard, with investigators alleging they swiped credit cards and went on a nearly $750,000 spending spree.

An indictment accused 10 people of playing part in the alleged scheme, four of them being mail carriers with routes in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and even as far away as Virginia.

Prosecutors in Manhattan Criminal Court said that Michael Richards was the ringleader of the operation, as he allegedly recruited postal workers to steal unopened credit cards between 2017 and 2019. The four mail carriers were paid different amounts based on how well the stolen credit cards performed in the marketplace, according to prosecutors.
