Life Imitating Seinfeld... Hello Newman!

(From the "New York Post") A Brooklyn postal worker allegedly pulled a stunt worthy of the unscrupulous mailman from "Seinfeld" when he was caught red-handed hiding hundreds of undelivered letters in the trunk of his car, officials said.

Letter carrier Peter Ramsdal, 26, had stashed the bags of mail in his 2008 Mazda during a trip to the Catskills on April 21. His hoard was discovered when he was pulled over for driving with a suspended registration, cops said. As Catskills officers impounded his car, they found three US Postal Service mailbags with 537 pieces of mail.

"We found three large bags of mail, unopened and opened, time-sensitive mail, priority mail. He said he had taken it. We don't know where he was going," Sager said. The local officers told federal postal inspectors about the pilfered mail, and Ramsdal was placed under investigation.

He later allegedly admitted to a postal inspector that he purposely delayed the mail, according to documents.
