 I am reporting what I suspect is theft of perscription medications sent via the USPS from the V.A. hospital in Dallas Texas to me.  Last year I went through a period of time when many of my perscriptions were delivered by my postal carrier that were torn open and missing high dollar medicines.  I reported this to the post master general in Washington and the local police, niether did anything to remedy to situation.  After some months of complaining, the post master general in washington instructed the local branch to hold my medicines at the branch and notify me and I went to pick them up.  No more thefts since then.  Until now.  I recieved a notification slip today, dated yesterday.  I went to pick up my meds and found that no one at the branch knew where they were or where the carrier was and could not contact him.

I tried to notify the postmaster generals office and was, after 20 minutes (recorded) finally transfered to a bowling alley where a very nice oriental woman said she would look the number up for me.  I tried twice to reach the office of a postal examiner to no avail.  None of the numbers listed went to the offices that were listed.  I continue to get the run around. Now I am contacting the media for a follow up story to the last one. 

Is it common practice for postal workers to help their selves to other peoples medicines?  Are they stealing for resale of them?  No one in the Postal service seams to know or care about their customers nor do they care about felonious actions by some (or more) of their employees.  There was no investigation the last time, I was told that they would look into it but I never heard anything about it nor did I get any replacement medicines from the VA.  It appears that inhalers are the HOT commodity these days.  Along with hard narcotics shipped in three month supplies.

It is no wonder the postal service is losing money and their reputations, they don't act like professionals and only protect the thieves. 

I welcome any and all news agencies to follow up on this story.  I have copies of letters and recorded conversations with the postal service and the local police and the VA in Dallas and Washington.

 This is nothing new really. The workers of the USPS have been accused many times of stealing. Most that work with the USPS know how and when to steal something they want. If your putting high dollar meds through the mail and its something ppl can get a buzz on then yep they are stealing your meds. I had a similar situation a few times when Netflix offered CD delivery to your home. I would recieve the disks but when I sent them back, Netflix never recieved them. In the end I was given a case number but that hasnt helped me because Netflix will not send to a residence that has had more then 3 games stolen. So this is not a uncommon practice. It used to be just a random Birthday card and sometimes a Christmas card. But its gotten so bad now that unless the USPS revamps everywhere its just going to get much worse. Instead of just posting how about CALLING your local TV stations. Stories only get exposure by being something reported locally THEN picked up by the major stations.
