ΕΛΤΑ employee arrested for "staged" robbery

A cunning postal worker wanted to justify embezzlement of almost 20,000 euros, but his plan was exposed.

A ΕΛΤΑ employee was arrested because, according to police, he falsely claimed that two unidentified men took 20,000 euros from him at gunpoint, the amount he embezzled from the post office where he worked.

According to police, on Wednesday, the defendant said that while transporting the amount of 20,000 euros in a company car, he was the victim of a robbery by two unknown persons who caught up with him on a motorcycle wearing helmets. With the use of a pistol and the threat of violence, they allegedly took away his money.

As part of the investigation conducted by the security department of Aegialias (Αιγιαλείας, Patras), information on this case was carefully collected. Then it turned out that the defendant staged the robbery himself in order to justify the theft of the sum of money.

The man confessed to the theft and showed the police a piece of land in the Aegialias area, where he hid the amount of 19,880 euros. The bag containing the stolen cash was found and turned over to the manager of the ΕΛΤΑ branch.

A criminal case has been initiated against the detainee on the facts of embezzlement, untruthful statements and false testimony.
