    Employee allegedly steals packages from UPS facility in KCK


    Police were investigating the possible theft of packages by an UPS employee at a center in Kansas City, Kan., according to police and company officials.
    The alleged theft at the facility on North James Street was uncovered by UPS, and following its own internal investigation the company decided to call police, said Elizabeth Rasberry, a spokeswoman for UPS in Atlanta.
    The investigation is still ongoing, Rasberry said, and no number of packages or their estimated value was available.
    Rasberry said the company stands by the reliability of its network and takes security very seriously.
    She suggested customers concerned about the status of their packages should check their tracking numbers on www.ups.com.
    UPS contacted police a few days ago concerning the alleged theft, said officer Jackie Waters, a department spokeswoman. One person has been taken in for questioning, she said.

    It astounds me that anyone would be stupid enough to think they could get away with this.
    Charles Darwin was right: the weak and the stupid perish, the strong and the smart survive.
    The weak and the stupid think they can steal and get away with it.

    ......so much for the shallow gene pool.

    The people they catch stealing is a drop in the bucket compared to how many are getting away with it. That applies in any industry and is factored into the cost of doing business. The technology UPS deploys does improve LP's ability to catch thieves. The issue lies in the enforcement of policy. Large buildings have guard shacks, metal detectors, cameras, LP staff, etc but the small facilities almost always have no guard shack, no metal detectors and not even an LP person on-site.

    We even had our own keys to the building.I still have a key even though I've been retired for 6 years. In the 70's and 80's a few drivers would meet at the building on Sundays and wash their personal vehicals and have a beer or two. As far as I can remember no one was ever charged with theft at our center. (other than being accused of stealing time ha ha)
