A former mailman who figured he needed the money more than “The Servants of Mary” was sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison on Tuesday, for stealing mail containing more than $275,000 in charity donations.
Officer Damien Bolden was off-duty but still helped nab a mail thief.
A former mail carrier has pleaded guilty to stealing $275,000 in donations that had been mailed to a charity on his route in west suburban Berwyn.
