Mailman Charged With Stealing Bank Cards From People on Route

November 19, 1985

ROANOKE, Va. (AP) _ A former mailman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly stealing automatic bank cards from people on his delivery route.

The 11-count indictment Monday charged Bobby Joel Argabright, 34, pocketed at least seven letters containing the cards and used them to obtain at least $3,800 between June and September.

Calvin Johnson, the U.S. postmaster in Roanoke, said Argabright resigned last month after U.S. Postal Service inspectors began an investigation.

The charges carry a maximum penalty of 60 years in prison and a fine of $30,000.
