Gentleman steals over 1,000 pounds of mail while working as postman

An Italian postman has had a hard time parting with other people's mail. The 56-year-old gentleman, from Vicenza Italy, has been hoarding mail in his garage – mail that included letters, bills, statements, and pamphlets – that go as far back as 2010.

He had stashed over 1,000 pounds of mail in yellow plastic containers that belonged to the post office – 43 of them in all. But he now must part with his collection, as a recycling company discovered it when they came to clean out his garage.

The Vicenza post office promised to deliver all of the mail – even if some of it is eight years too late.
