One More Time, Greedy Thief Returns to Take Packages From Cle Elum Post Office
Once wasn't enough for this greedy thief
Kittitas County Sheriff's Deputies and US Postal Inspectors teamed together to catch a brazen burglar after she was caught on camera red-handed, stealing packages.
29-year-old Amanda Woodcock was arrested Monday after Deputies served a search warrant at her residence in South Cle Elum.
She's believed to be involved in burglaries at the South Cle-Elum Post Office on June 14th, 21st, and 26th.
According to the Kittitas County Sheriff:
In each of the burglaries, someone forced their way into the secured area of the office and took mail and packages. The initial incident was reported to the US Postal Inspection Service by the local Postmaster. Deputies responded and consulted with the Postal Inspector.
When the office was broken into again on 6/21, deputies worked with Postal Inspectors to place a motion-sensitive camera in the secured area of the office. Early in the morning of 6/26, that camera captured video of Woodcock inside the secured area of the post office, rifling through packages. The camera also captured footage of Woodcock observing the camera, pulling it down, and throwing it outside. It was later recovered by deputies.
You'll never believe the rest of the story.
When Deputies showed up to Woodcock's residence, she was wearing the exact same sweatshirt she had on when she was recorded stealing packages from the Post Office on Sunday. Property taken from the Post Office was recovered in Woodcock's home.
Woodcock posted about the burglaries on her Facebook page:
Woodcock also called Kittcom to report the burglary.
On Monday, Woodcock was arrested and booked on charges of burglary, malicious mischief and theft. Anyone who has any information regarding these burglaries is asked to call Kittcom at 509-925-8534.
