SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — If that gift card you were expecting never showed up in the mail, this could be why: on Tuesday, three former Sacramento airport workers pled guilty in a scheme to steal mail.
Domingo Ene, 28; Joshua Hopoi, 24; and Raymond Su, 31, were baggage and mail handlers at SMF from April to July of 2018. Prosecutors say the men stole at least 95 gift cards and $3,295 during that time, dividing the proceeds among themselves.READ MORE: Sacramento County Tackles Zip Code Vaccine Disparities
