Several postal service uniforms stolen, beware of impostors

ROCK HILL, SC (WIS) - The Charlotte division of the United States Postal Service is telling the public to beware of imposters after six uniforms and one jacket were stolen in Rock Hill over the weekend.

The items all have the USPS logo on them. Someone stole the items after breaking into multiple storage units rented by a Postal Service employee over Labor Day weekend.

Anyone who is suspicious of a postal employee should ask for a picture ID. If the person cannot show you an ID, you should notify authorities.

"Postal employees should be maintain tight security for Postal facilities and monitor those entering any building, challenging unknown entrants for proper ID," said Postal Inspection Service Public Information Officer Justin Crooks. "This theft is a misdemeanor, but using the uniforms to perpetrate a crime would be a federal offense."
