    Do they physically have to catch you? I'm asking because when an employee showed up to work today he was taken out in cuffs and rumors are it was for theft.

    dude if your stealing that is just wrong. nothing at UPS is worth taking and losing your job. Above all else you are making a customer of ours very unhappy by taking their stuff. I like my customers:happy-very: so keep them happy guys

    Cuffs have put an end to too many UPSers' careers. Sometimes hand, more often rotator.

    They probably have the fool on film. They have cameras everywhere...

    Somepeoplecallmethestig Are you not amused?

    If they took him out in cuffs its a good bet they had him on tape, if it is even UPS related.

    It could be he was wanted for other crimes and the Cops just came to UPS to grab him.

    We had a guy brusted at our building when I 1st started turns out he was dealing drugs and it had nothing to do with UPS they had gone to his home but he was not there, it was 4 am and he had left for work. SO the cops just came to get him at work.

    Answer:

    You steal. You get caught. You get fired.

    Anymore questions?

    I never witnessed anyone being taken out in cuffs but I have seen a few sups and center manager's escorted out in straightjackets.

    The last one I saw was a Preloader who was filmed stealing jewelry and cellphones. A lot of claims started showing up in a certain package car. The driver and preloader for that route where the first suspects. It turned out a preloader up the belt was taking packages inside a different package car and was filmed going through them. He got arrested and was led out in handcuffs in front of everybody right before our PCM to make a statement. Good riddence, I hate thieves.

    Jones, you have to tell us more about this one. What would the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms want with a UPS clerk?

    Theft is taking something that isn't yours.

    If you are paranoid and believe in conspiracy theories, check your coat pockets before you leave the building. Dump out anything that isn't yours.

    That's a bit presumptous. What if they confused her with Upstate and got the wrong woman?

    For a while now it's been the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

    But they go by "ATF."

    Check out their interesting website:
