A postman who stole £5,000 from mail he should have delivered has been jailed for eight months.
Gareth Goodrum, 34, gradually took the funds from bank cards and gift cards while sorting and delivering post in order to fund his gambling habit.
He admitted to blowing his money on football betting websites and in casinos, eventually building up £15,000 of debt. A postman has been jailed for stealing thousands of pound out of people’s mail (File picture: Getty)
Goodrum was identified as the prime suspect after Royal Mail officials launched a secret probe into missing packages.
When police searched his home, they found 96 Royal Mail packages hidden under a barbecue in the garden in Bournemouth, Dorset.
Goodrum, a former prison officer, admitted three counts of theft and six of fraud at Bournemouth Crown Court and said he began gambling to provide his young family with a better life. Advertisement Advertisement
Mitigating, Rob Griffiths, said: ‘He was completely addicted. He gambled away his wages and made excuses to his wife. He had debts of £15,000.
‘This could be described as cold-blooded dishonesty or it could be describe as simply desperation.’ He admitted to spending the money on football betting websites and casinos (Picture: Getty)
In an interview with the probation service Goodrum said he was ‘disgusted’ with himself and added: ‘I know I was 100% wrong and 100% dishonest.’
Judge Karim Ezzat said the offences constituted a breach of trust given his role at the Royal Mail but added there was ‘no good reason’ for his sentence to be suspended.
The Royal Mail said they had a ‘zero tolerance’ approach to dishonesty by their staff who ‘abuse their position of trust’.
A spokesperson said: ‘Royal Mail has a zero tolerance approach to any dishonesty and that stance is shared by the overwhelming majority of postmen and women, who are honest and hardworking and who do all they can to protect the mail and deliver it safely.
‘Royal Mail will always seek to prosecute the tiny minority of people who abuse their position of trust.’ Got a story for
