Retail Associate Bertie Faulkner was on duty recently in New Albany, IN, when a man attempted to cash a money order that had apparently been altered.
Faulkner alerted authorities, but the suspect and an accomplice left before law enforcement officers got there.
Several weeks later, the suspect returned to the Post Office.
Faulkner recognized him and again alerted authorities, who soon arrived and arrested him.
“Bertie’s quick actions saved the Postal Service a tremendous amount of money by getting these criminals off the streets,” Postal Inspector Clint Springer told the local ABC station.
Springer noted that the case involved $2 money orders modified to appear to be worth $200 each.
