Hundreds of movies stolen, ex-postal workers may have been involved

LYONS – Postal investigators are looking into the theft of 503 movie DVDS from Netflix, the California-based internet company that delivers rental movies by mail.The company mails about 1.2 million DVDS to its subscribers daily in bright red envelopes that make them easy to spot. Still, thefts are rare, said company spokesman Steve Swasey. “It is rare, very rare. We have good security procedures and an excellent relationship with the U.S. Postal Service,” said Swasey.Gloria Flores, a former employee of the Lyons post office, admitted stealing movies and was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours of public service. She could not be reached for comment.
