Postal Worker Pleads Guilty to Stealing 3,012 Netflix Movies

If you live in Massachusetts and haven't been receiving your Netflix movies in the mail, chances are they were stolen by a postal worker.

According to the Smoking Gun, Myles Weathers, 49, who worked at a mail processing and distribution center in Springfield, Mass., was arrested last year after Netflix became suspicious and video cameras caught him removing the DVDs from Netflix envelopes and placing the discs into his backpack. The genius, stole roughly 3,012 movies valued at $36,471.

Myles plead guilty to federal charges on Monday and will be sentenced on Dec. 23. All of the DVDs were recovered, but he's expected to serve one year in prison and must pay $2,032 in restitution.
