The Great Elkridge Stamp Heist

According to this story by Freeman Klopott in the DC Examiner, a postal worker from the Elkridge post office was arrested last Wednesday and charged with stealing more than $600,000 worth of postage stamps.

That’s a lot of stamps!

The window clerk, Marvin Foster, was charged along with his alleged accomplice, Kyle Mathias, with stealing the stamps and selling them at a discount on Ebay.

Wow, that's about 1.5 million stamps.

Somewhere Lysander Spooner is smiling, and so am I.
