A UPS driver and his girlfriend have been placed under arrest for stealing and being in possession of guns the driver was supposed to deliver.
The investigation began on July 12 at Main Street Guns in Lilburn. City police were called in after an incomplete delivery of firearms showed up at their door with clear signs of theft.
The box that was delivered by UPS had what Lilburn police described as "obvious signs of having been opened and resealed."
When the box was opened, the business noted that nine of 10 guns were missing and were estimated to be about $5,000 in value.
"Recovering the guns is significant because stolen guns never turn up in the hands of law abiding citizens. They get bought and used by criminals," Lilburn Police Captain Thomas Bardugon said.

The driver assumed the business would assume this was normal? :screwy:

It's getting to be quite normal.

Had a 90 lb dehumidifier go "missing" from the Kennesaw FedEx last week, tracking # showed it arrived at the hub and then it was gone.

Back in March had half a box of tools go missing from UPS. The tracking # even denoted the box was open due to a liquid leak, there was no liquid.

Last Fall, FedEx lost a 100+ lb 4 wheel drive transfer case

In all cases the person on the phone couldn't have cared less.

I am convinced FedEx / UPS package handlers can take what they want without reprecusion. The only reason this story was different, it involved firearms

How could he have even remotely assumed he wouldn't get caught? Do people think they're living in a computer game where they can do stupid stuff without consequences?

FedEx and UPS had better start putting cameras in their vehicles to watch what the drivers do with the packages.

That's the point. I can't recall the last time I read an article about a crime being committed with a stolen dehumidifier.

Because he's taken goods before and no one has done anything. His only mistake this time was taking firearms
