mail truck

After two failed carjackings in Houston Saturday, a suspect decided to try his hand at stealing a mail truck from a postal worker, but it wasn’t long before authorities found him thanks to a GPS device.

One resident called the crime both “amazing” and “stupid.”

When officers caught up with the mail truck, the suspect apparently backed into a patrol car before finally surrendering without further incident. Authorities later learned the man was wanted not only for stealing the mail truck, but for two failed carjackings earlier that day. They also learned the weapon he brandished during the crime was a pellet gun.

It’s unclear what the man intended to do with the mail truck, but when asked why he stole it, he indicated it was too tough to find a job. But because the man chose to steal USPS property and the crime involved a federal worker, the suspect may be facing federal charges.
