A gang suspected of stealing packages from the Post Office, in Rio Grande do Sul, painted a truck yellow to avoid attracting the attention of the authorities, according to the Federal Police (PF). At the beginning of the month, 18 people were indicted for fraud, which caused more than R$1 million in losses.

According to the PF, the group diverted electronic devices, such as computers, cell phones and notebooks, and even items such as Cuban cigars. A video obtained by the PF shows how those investigated acted.

Among the 18 indicted are five drivers from outsourced Correios companies. In total, nine people were arrested. All those investigated are responsible for qualified theft, qualified reception, criminal organization, money laundering, international drug trafficking and clandestine use of radio transceivers.

In a statement, Correios reported that, after identifying suspicious actions by third parties, they called security agencies to investigate possible responsibilities. The company also said that it is monitoring the case to take administrative measures and that it prioritizes investments in tools to combat this type of occurrence.

For those waiting for correspondence, the Post Office’s guidance is to monitor the status of deliveries using the tracking system available on the website or application. In case of theft or loss, the customer must request an investigation, registering a complaint through the company’s service channels and follow the procedures for compensation.

For the PF, the damage to Correios ends up extending to the entire population.
